- Tyrone (the first Dipper clone) trying to feed Paper Jam Dipper. Scary, but also oddly heartwarming, and funny all the while.

- Soos finally found the lightning sound effect.
- Mabel singing "Don't Start Unbelieving".
- "I'm gonna do a flip!" *smacks face on floor* "That was for you guys!"
- Soos being the DJ.
Soos: Alright everybody, remember who... Party Hardies, what?Soos: The energy! It's electric! Uh, lightning! Lightning, lightning, lightning... (Soos pushes buttons on a soundboard, and sounds of a duck, a dog and Grunkle Stan going YEAH! play in order)
- Grenda's voice.
Pacifica: Oh, and Grenda, you sound like a professional wrestler.
Grenda: I WANNA PUT HER IN A HEADLOCK AND MAKE HER FEEL PAIN!
- Dipper's clones stealing Robbie's bike was both hilarious and awesome.
Soos: Would the owner of a silver and red dirt bike please report outside? It is being stolen right now.Robbie: *Sitting calmly on the couch* WHAT?!
- Apparently, Tyrone knows what "number 2" REALLY means.
Dipper: I shall call you "Number 2"!Tyrone: Definitely not.
- This exchange:
Dipper: So... what's your favorite snack food?
Wendy: No way, I can't just pick one.
Dipper: Mine too!
Wendy: Wait, what?
Dipper: Uhh... Um... *stuffs a handful of popcorn in his mouth*
- Grunkle Stan asks Dipper to print flyers for his party.
Mabel: Oh boy, a trip to the copier store!
Soos: "Calenders, mugs, T-shirts and more! They got it all at the copier store!" That's not their slogan, I just really feel that way about the copier store.
- "CLONE FIGHT!"
- The Dipper clones' understated reaction to getting caught under the sprinklers and melting away.
Aw, boo! Lame! This stinks...
- When Dipper tries to convince the other clones to stop fighting, they consider that idea and begins to chat with each other. Then Dipper just punches Tyrone, just like that! The immediate silence and then the clones proceeding to fight is just priceless.
- This little bit:
Stan: Just remember: If you come back to the Shack talking like these people, you're dead to me.Dipper: (in pioneerish voice) There's a carpet-bagger in the turnip cellar!Mabel: (in pioneerish voice) Well, hornswoggle my haversack![both spit on the ground, then run off laughing]Stan: DEAD TO ME!!
- Poor Toby Determined getting on Stan's bad side during Pioneer Day.
Toby: Welcome to 1863!Stan: I will break you, little man!
- Everything to do with Quentin Trembley.
- This exchange:
Trembley: Who could you possibly get to replace me?
Baby Congressman: Mama.
Trembley: That old crone?
- "Come on, Steve you're a mechanic! Cut me some slack!
- The officers then come in the scene.
Stan: Oh look, "the constable". What are you gonna do, throw me in "ye stocks"? Ahahaha!
(cut to Stan in the stocks)
Stan: Awww come on!
- The officers then come in the scene.
- After the folded map leads Dipper and Mabel to the "Gravity Falls Museum of History":
Dipper: We're going to have to break in. (dramatic music)
Pioneer Day Lady: Annnd those are your free Pioneer Day passes. And your balloons, blue and pink.
Dipper: (dramatic music) We're in.
- "Hey painting, be less stupid!"
Pioneer Day Lady: I'm sorry but we're all out of pink balloons.
Deputy Durland: (in the most dejected voice possible) Why did we even come?
- Once Trembley makes Mabel a Congressman:
Mabel: I'm legalizing everything!
- Gideon "dropping" his tomatoes.
Gideon: Whoops, I dropped one! *WHACK* Whoops, I dropped another one! *WHACK*
- "The only thing we have to fear is gigantic man-eating spiders!"
- This exchange:
Trembley: ... I will always be right here, on the negative twelve dollar bill.
Dipper: Wow, this is worthless!
Trembley: It's less than worthless, dear boy!
- The man married to the woodpecker
Man: For the last time we're not going south for the winter, our home is here! (woodpecker pecks on the table) You always say that!
- The top secret document:
Let it here be recorded... Nathaniel Northwest, famous in his native Gravity Falls for standing in the park and hitting himself with a large boating oar until he blacked out, was chosen to become the patsy mayor of Gravity Falls. Northwest spoke in a series of grunts and screams and often yelled his trademark phrase: "I am going to eat this entire oak tree because I am a powerful wizard!"The fabled founder of Gravity Falls was, in fact a fraud. His last moments on Earth were spent choking on a giant piece of bark, attempting to live out his beautiful dream. He was hated by everyone that knew him. He will not be missed.Thomas Jefferson was actually just two kids in an overcoat standing on each other's shoulders. The current and forever President of the United States is actually Santa Claus. Under the reign of Mr. Claus, America is not a democracy, but a jollyocracy. The statues at Mount Rushmore are actually gigantic presidential-faced robots that will be called into action when America needs them the most. An enormous, evil, time-traveling baby from another dimension is frozen in an Antarctic glacier. Fortunately, glaciers never melt, so we should be fine. Writing jokes for cartoons is more important than sleep. If you recite the Pledge of Allegiance backwards, you'll gain secret wizard powers! (This one is true kids! Try it at home!)The true founder of Gravity Falls is: Sir Lord Quentin Trembley III, Esq.
- Dipper's lesson on revenge at the end.
Dipper: Man, revenge is underrated. That felt awesome!
- At the end of the episode, Mabel shouts "Mabel away!" then jumps backwards like what Quentin did earlier, before crashing into several trash cans offscreen.
Mabel: I'm okay!
- When Pacifca asks Stan to write down that the Northwests are the greatest family in Gravity Falls, Stan instead write "You Stink".
The Time Traveler's Pig
- Dipper warns Mabel not to change history in the pioneer days. Mabel is Waddles-less and having none of it.
Mabel: [hands a kid a calculator] Check it out! A magic button machine! Shoes that blink! [to a pioneer woman] Hey, sister, guess who gets to vote in the future? Ladies! Up top! [high fives her] That's called a high five. Teach it to your friends.
- When Dipper and Mabel get their hands on Blendin Blandin's time-travel measuring tape.
Dipper: Here it is Mabel. Our ticket to any moment in history.Mabel: Let's get two dodos and force them to make out!
- "OH MY GOSH A PIG!!"
- Apparently, if one were to rub his or her face with Waddles's, everything turns different.
Mabel: Everything is different now.
Dipper: I think the sky tram is broken. Also, most of my bones.Stan: Haha! This guy.
- Robbie is looking for Wendy.
Dipper: Yeah, I think I saw her at the bottomless pit. You should go jump in there.Robbie: Maybe I will, smart guy!
- Dipper and Mabel on Robbie
Mabel: He is such a jerk.Dipper: Yeah, but he's a jerk with tight pants and a guitar.
- "Ah, you want 'ol Fifteen Poundy! Alright, how much ya guessin' he weighs?"
Mabel: ...um, Fifteen pounds?Game Runner: (Dead serious) Are you some kind of witch?
- When Dipper confronts Blendin about his suspicious behavior.
Dipper: Hey you, Toolbelt! You ruined my life!Blendin: Huh?Dipper: Don't "huh" me, I've seen you before! What's your deal, are you following us around?Mabel: And why are you bald, what's that all about?
- "Memory wipe!" "This is a baby wipe."
- "Like a hawk!"
- During the first "do-over"...
Mabel: Fifteen pounds! And yes, I am a witch!Carny: *lights a torch* Well, time to round up a mob.
- And the mob actually shows up when Mabel and Dipper go back in time again.
- Dipper and Mabel eventually time travel to a future where society has crumbled, and there are people in bullet proof vests shooting at a giant killer floating baby who's destroying buildings and highways.
Mabel: This future's neat.Dipper grabs the time traveling tape and frantically starts pressing buttons.
- On one of Dipper's multiple attempts to impress Wendy, he tears open a bag of baseballs that falls on top of Wendy.
- Robbie gets scared by Waddles, and knocks over a tub of hot water drenching and shrinking his pants.
Dipper: That'll do, pig. That'll do.
- Blendin Blandin catching the twins after all is said and done;
Blendin: Do you know how many rules you just broke!? I'm asking...I wasn't there with you...it was a lot, right?
- The time cops who come to arrest Blendin are named Lolph and Dundgren.
- When Dipper and Mabel "Go to the end of time".
Dipper: Don't you see?! WE'VE TRANSPORTED TO THE END OF TIME!Mabel: AHH!Dipper: AHH!Mabel: Hey, why does it smell so bad in here?Dipper opens door to reveal they were in a portable bathroom.
- Grunkle Stan's advice concerning whether something is legal or not: "When there's no cops around, anything's legal!"
- When Mabel and Waddles the pig first meet.
Waddles: Wurble.Mabel: He said Mabel! Either that or doorbell. Did you say Mabel, or doorbell?Waddles: Wurble.
- Stan apparently incorporates "Miserable Mabel" into the Mystery Shack tour without batting an eye.
- When the twins accidentally activate the time machine during their fighting:
Dipper: When are we?
Mabel: The real question is: when are we! [beat] Oh, wait, did you...
Dipper: Yeah, I already...
Mabel: Because I was gonna...
Dipper: Yeah. Yeah, same thing.
- To prove that he really is a time traveler, Blendin Blandin pops out and back, dressed as Henry VIII. "That's right! Fifteen years ago, there used to be a costume store right here!" He then goes to return his costume, and comes back... on fire. "Aah! Pat down, pat down!" According to Word of God, that wasn't a one-time accident; Blendin's set himself on fire so often that it's why he's bald.
- Wendy and Dipper trying to punch the Fight Fighters ref in the beginning of the episode.
- The game console Soos climbed in was for a game called Nort. The words on the side of the console? "The game based off the movie based off the game."
- Rumble McSkirmish looks to be a veritable gold mine of these. His over-the-top, fighting game character mannerisms and pixel-art appearance make him amazingly funny to watch.
- He always shouts whatever he's doing.
- When Dipper tells him to hold perfectly still so Grunkle Stan won't see him, he can't because of his idle animation.
- BOWL OF PAWNCH!
- When attacking Robbie, he throws barrels down scaffolding, punches out fire hydrants and news stands for powerups before a GO sign appears, telling him to move forwards, and beats the crap out of a new car as a bonus round as a shout out to Final Fight and Street Fighter.

- The credits scene. Oh, good gosh, the credits scene...
Om, nom, nom, eating my friends...
- At the "Choose Character" screen:
Dipper: I'm Dipper! I have shorts and determination!Mabel: (in an Italian accent, ala Mario) It's-a me! A-Mabel!Stan: I'm slower, but I jump higher.Wendy: Pick me or whatever.
- "Alas. 'Twas but a dream."
- At the "Choose Character" screen:
- Soos has always wondered what it would be like to be inside of a video game. So, he unscrews the back and climbs inside, getting stuck and scares off the next person who tries to play it.
Soos: Help! I'm trapped in the game! It was cool in theory, but in practice it was really boring!
- "Now I must defeat the greatest Fight Fighters! Take me to the Soviet Union!" "Uh, that's gonna be tough. For a number of reasons."
- This exchange:
Dipper: Rumble, I have something to tell you! Robbie didn't kill my father!
Rumble: What? Then who did?
Dipper: Wah? No one!
- The joke surrounding Dipper and Robbie hating each other "the way girls do".
- After promising Grunkle Stan she won't take him to a high place, she puts on a second sweater with a "Scouts honor" hand symbol on it. After his back is turned, she turns around with a cheeky little grin, revealing to the camera a "crossies" symbol on the back of her shirt, before flipping her hair out from inside her shirt to cover it up. That was brilliant visual gag writing...
- "GURL, WHY YOU ACKIN' SO CRAY CRAY?!" Then having that phrase turn out to be the name of the talk show—spelling included.
Stan: So I have a fear of heights. Is that really so cray cray?
- Also Mabel and Stan incorporating "cray cray" into their conversations
- "You can hide, but you can't hide!"
- "This street has really dangerous litter."
- "Studies show that keeping a ladder inside a house is more dangerous than a loaded gun. That’s why I own 10 guns. In case some maniac tries to sneak in a ladder!"
- When it looks like Stan has conquered his fear of heights: "Wait, lemme do a cocky dance, just to be sure. Hoodlydoo! Boodlydoo! Boodlyboo! Hahahahaha!"
- Grunkle Stan playing "Insert Token!," a video "game" only he could appreciate — if only he thought of it first.
Announcer: Congratulations! You win! (beat) Insert token!
- While Rumble was chasing Robbie, he comes across an expensive-looking new car that a father had just bought for his son, and beats it up for bonus points.
Son: Oh, my car.Father: We'll just buy another one!Son: I love being rich.
- Old Man McGucket playing a Dance Dance Revolution-y game called Hoe-down Hero...which isn't working. Or plugged in.
Old Man McGucket: I've been jiggin' for seven days straight!Mabel: (Holds up unconnected plug) Uh, Soos...Soos: Let him have this.
- This exchange, from near the end:
Robbie: Why is it that whenever you're around, there's always ghosts or monsters or... whatever?!Dipper: I dunno, man.
- At the end of the episode, Dipper and Robbie going from laughing at one of Wendy's jokes; to glaring at each other and making threatening gestures the moment she looks away; then right back to acting like they're friends.
- Stan upon seeing Mabel brought him to a high place despite her promise: "Yeah, that was pretty much what I expected."
- Soos talking about how dangerous teenagers are; "My cousin Reggie got into a fight with a teen once; the dude broke like all his arms, all his legs, and like totally killed him or something, I don't know. Me and Reggie were just talking about it."

Stan: Wanna see what else is on TV?Dipper: Yeah, alright.Mabel: My favorite part's the theme song. (cue theme song)
- The endless parade of short jokes at Dipper's expense.
Soos: Dudes, maybe you should lay off a tiny bit.Stan: Ha! Tiny! Soos is in on it now!
- The chess game between Dipper and Mabel at the beginning
Dipper: It's a pawn, that's not your color, and stop stealing the tiny horses.Mabel: *all of the knight pieces are stuffed in her sweater* They like it better in here. *to the horses* Don't you babies? *horse whinny*
- Dipper playing with the grow/shrink crystal.
Dipper: Smaller... *shrinks the pawn piece* ... bigger... *pawn piece grows and suddenly breaks through the roof* ... too big!
- Later, the giant pawn is still there. Apparently Dipper didn't shrink it back because that would leave a huge hole in the roof.
- When Mabel thinks Dipper's growth spurt was caused by a wizard.
Mabel: This is some kind of magicky thing isn't it? Was it a wizard or something? There's a wizard in this closet isn't there? Isn't there?
Dipper: What? No!
Mabel: You're telling me there is not a wizard in this closet? You're telling me that if I open this door right now—
Dipper: Fine, open it.
(Mabel opens the closet door to reveal nothing but two shirts and a pair of boots.)
Mabel: An invisible wizard! Really, Dipper?
- Even funnier is that she still thinks there's a Invisible Wizard in the closet even after Dipper reveals the shrinking crystal and its properties.
- THE INVISIBLE WIZARD IS WATCHING.
- Oh no! Gideon has found the flashlight!
Gideon:: Now, what manner of doohickery is this?Mabel: (To Dipper) Maybe he won't realize it's a magic flashlight that can grow and shrink things.(Cut to show that Gideon is standing a foot away from the Twins) and has obviously heard every word she saidDipper: (Annoyed) Seriously?
- Bud Gleeful selling Old Man McGucket a car. "Engine possum at no extra charge!"
- Gideon wants to learn where Dipper discovered the crystal with size changing powers. So Dipper tells him that he'll tell him if he leans in closer. Surprise, there's an air horn there.
- "'Text me a photo'? Now you're not even speaking English!"
- "WHAT AM I DOIN'!?"
- "Cheekums, to freedom! (beat) To freedom! (beat) Aw, you're just a big ol' dummy-dumb, aren't you?"
- Gideon's conversations with his parents. All of them.
"DON'T TICKLE ME!"
Gideon's Mom: Just keep vacuuming. Just keep vacuuming.
- In this episode, we finally get to see Gideon's mom, who has grey hair and always looks paranoid, as if she hasn't slept in weeks.
- This exchange:
Lazy Susan: What cute little thing are you off to, you cute little cutie-face?Gideon: (cheerfully) I'm gonna annihilate my arch-enemy's entire family.Lazy Susan: Oh... okay. Yay...
- Gideon being distracted from his evil plot when the Gummi Koala Mabel saved falls into his hair, and he has to get it out and fix his pompadour. "I can't defeat Stan lookin' like this!"
- "You'll never find Stan... on the second door to the left, down the hall... Why did I say that?!"
- "TELL MY STORYYYYYYYY!"
- Gideon advancing towards Stan and laughing psychotically when the shrunken Mabel and Dipper start tickling him. Cue Gideon falling over and rolling on the floor in laughter.
Stan: Uh, I don't even know how to respond to this. *nudges Gideon outside with foot*

Stan: Yeah, you're the light of my life, too, pal. *slams the door shut* Jeez, freakshow!
- The ending, where Dipper and Mabel destroy the crystal that can change things sizes, only for a still-shrunken Soos to find them.
Mabel: Glue.Dipper: Lots of glue!
Soos: Alright, something's definitely different here...
- Soos' shrinking in general was pretty funny, when Gideon shrunk the first thing in a fez he saw, and it just ended up being Soos trying on Stan's.
- "Oh hi, Gideon; I was looking for someone to try out my mirror maze, but then again, you're an idiot. (beat) That's the end of the sentence."
- "I ate a man alive tonight."
- Stan explains to Dipper about Summerween with a calender.
Dipper: Do you always carry that calender in your pocket?Stan: ...Yes.
- The ridiculous little dance Mabel and Dipper perform as part of their twin-set Halloween costume Peanut Butter and Jelly. Its a real hit with the house owners too.
- The two trick-or-treaters who Stan cant seem to scare no matter what he does. He eventually asks them what they ARE scared of and they show him a Screamer video.
Stan: What is this, some kinda kitten video- *zombie face pops up on the screen* AAAHHH!!!! AAAAHHHHH!!! AAAAAAHHHH!!! *shuffles back into the house*
- Stan finally manages to scare those two trick-or-treaters when they see him without a towel on as he is about to take a bath. Not many things can be so hilariously traumatizing as that.
- Gorney, the new kid who gets swallowed whole in the first five minutes of the episode, popping up at the end.
Gorney: (cheerfully) I've been twaumatized!
Gorney: Hi evewyone! My name is Gorney!''(The Trickster throws him into its mouth)Gorney: WEMEMBUH ME!!!

Summerween Trickster: I'm made of every tossed piece of black licorice, every discarded bar of old chocolate with like, that white powder stuff on it. You know that stuff!?Mabel: I hate that stuff!
- From the cold open:
Store Clerk: Have the police come & eject the Pines family from the store.
Grunkle Stan: NOT TODAY!
(Stan throws a smoke bomb at the clerk's face)
Store Clerk: MY EYES!
(Stan pays for the stuff with "Stan Bucks" which is badly drawn in pad paper)
Store Clerk: I hate Summerween.
(Stan knocks down an electric pole in reverse)
Grunkle Stan: LET'S MOVE!
- Soos' love for the chattering Summerween Skull. So much that when everyone is trying to escape the Trickster at the end, not only does he go out of his way press the skull when the exit is right next to them and unguarded, he changes the batteries on the skull to make it work when it doesn't the first time.
Mabel: Soos! Don't you dare!Soos: Sorry, dude. Tonight's been way stressful. I need some levity.
- Soos eats his way out of the Summerween Trickster Alien chestburster style.

- "Mabel's in charge now!"
Dipper: Are those shoulder pads?Mabel: Uh-huuuuh. It's just one of the many up-to-date managerial tricks I learned from this book I found propping up the kitchen table. (Holds up a book titled "Succeeding In Management 1983")
- When Dipper sets out to catch a supernatural creature. He grabs a flail that's as big as he is, and ends up falling out the window.
- Mabel giving Waddles money for a coffee run. Waddles just eats the money.
- Grunkle Stan using his "old man powers", faking a heart-attack which he claims can only be cured by putting him on a game show.
Cash Wheel Host: That man is a self-centered attention hog with no regard for human decency... Get him on TV!
- The cheesy song that plays over the montage: "Come on girls! Shoulder pads! Make that money! Mabel’s the boss now!"
- Soos "Questiony The Question Mark" costume, and its... limited success with customers.

- The gremloblin's odd fixation with the electronic talking fish.
I'm the Singin' Salmon, spendin' all day jammin'!
- The Gremloblin's worst fear: "You've become your father!"
- Stan's apology dance, and the song that goes with it:
I'm Stan, and I was wrong
I'm singing the Stan Wrong Song
I shouldn't have taken that chance
Now here's my remorseful dance!
- And afterwards:
Mabel: What do you think?
Mabel: TAKE THIRTY!
- And afterwards:

Mabel: Hey, Grunkle Stan, ever kissed a pig before?Stan: I'm not gonna answer that question.
- The headline of the Gravity Falls Gossiper Grunkle Stan is reading: "Reporter Calls Mom".

- Old Man McGucket's HORRIFYING VOICE!
A nearby child starts crying and runs offMcGucket: You can run, but I'll still be in your nightmares!
- Anything said by Dipper with his new voice, and the others' reactions to it. It doesn't hurt that he just happens to sound like Abridged Yami.
Mabel: (beating Dipper with a golf club) Who are you? What have you done with my brother?!Soos: (beating Dipper with a broom) Kill it! Kill it with fire! Everyone, flee!
- When Soos says Dipper sounds like "some weird commercial dude", this is Dipper's response:
Dipper: I'll find Stan! He'll like my new voice, you'll see! I'll be right back after these messages! ... I mean, goodbye.
- Mabel and Soos playing I Spy while falling through the void.

- And then what follows:
- Dipper slowly floating in the distance while screaming as Soos is getting ready to begin his story.
- The full title of Soos' story.
- Soos' previous best moment of his life (eating a slice of pizza that he found jammed inside a VCR).
- After Soos angers the Tumbleweed Terror machine:
Dipper: Uh, guys, there's an awful lot of green lightning coming out of that game...Soos: Nah, that's the normal amount of green lightning.
Soos: Are either of you good at jumping up and down and making annoying noises?(Mabel turns dramatically)Mabel: My time has come.
- "Prepare to meet your maker! My maker is Ballway Games!"

Stan: That story was great! I even threw in a robot for the kids!
- Mabel talking for Waddles.
- Stan's sudden and out of nowhere speech about life, which is so dark and depressing, it reduces Dipper to the brink of tears and sends Mabel into a Heroic BSOD.
Stan: Sometimes I wonder... is this all there is? Is life just some sort of horrific joke without a punchline, and we're all just biding our time until the sweet, sweet release of death?
- After Mabel lies to Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland, claiming that Grunkle Stan is secretly a crime fiction writer, Deputy Durland has this to say:
Deputy Durland: Wow, an author! Can you teach me how to read?
- And it becomes even funnier when you realize that it's a Call Back to "Irrational Treasure," when Mabel told Dipper that she didn't think "the one with the bell" could read. Fridge Brilliance then kicks in since Mabel is the narrator of this particular tale.
- Becomes a little weird after finding out that the actual Stanford Pines is the author of the journals.
- And it becomes even funnier when you realize that it's a Call Back to "Irrational Treasure," when Mabel told Dipper that she didn't think "the one with the bell" could read. Fridge Brilliance then kicks in since Mabel is the narrator of this particular tale.
- Stan doing his taxes while under the influence of the Truth Teeth, which just consists of him scribbling I HAVE COMMITTED TAX FRAUD across the form.
Dipper: Grunkle Stan, why did you write this?Stan: Because I regularly commit massive tax fraud.Dipper *feeds the form into a paper shredder* Might want to just... store that away.
Stan: Yeah, this is Stan Pines. I forgot to tell the officers about my tax fraud. No no, tax fraud. *gets tackled to the ground by Mabel and Dipper*
- This is followed up at the end of the story, where Mabel has just managed to get rid of the cops, only for Stan to call up the police station.
- Stan falling into the Bottomless Pit again at the end of the episode, and falls through the void in grumpy silence through the credits.
Stan: This is stupid.
The Deep End

Dipper: Wow, you work here?Wendy: I found out lifeguards get free snack privileges. Plus, I got the best seat in the house.
- Mr. Poolcheck's overzealous attitude towards "pool law".
Dipper: He seems emotionally unstable.
Soos: Pool ducks unite!
- At one point he cries when he finds Dipper goofing off on duty with Wendy.
- After Dipper and Mabel break in and free Mermando, he not only fires Dipper, but eats his whistle. You can hear it whistle as he chews it up and swallows it. Poolchek then tempts fate by snarling, "If one more thing goes wrong today..." Cue Soos attempting to escape with the pool ducks.
- Grunckle Stan is all set to claim the best chair in the pool for himself. But it turns out a certain someone beat him to it.
- Grunkle Stan: GIDEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!!
- That poor kid in pool solitary confinement. His predicament goes from funny to tragic and back again once you see just how long he's in there.
Kid: It's the nights that are the hardest.
Kid: Go Mabel! Go! (turns melancholy) We can't all be saved.
- Later, at night.
- Finally, the credits sequence where a montage shows him locked in there over the seasons.
- This exchange:
Mabel: A merman! Ha! I should have known from your strange foreign fish language.Mermando: (completely deadpan) It is Spanish.
- Mermando introducing himself:
"There are some who call me... (pulls a guitar out of nowhere and plays a mariachi riff) Mermando! (Beat) This is because Mermando is my name."
- Mermando's initial escape attempt.
- "...and then the wolves came."
- And how he wound up in the pool.
- Stan's little feud with Gideon over the Perfect Pool Chair. At one point Stan tries to get Gideon by reflecting sunlight off his watch.
Stan: Yes, yes! Burn the child.
- When appointed lifeguard, Dipper and Wendy quickly abuse their power, playing pranks on swimmers. In one instance they trick Soos into thinking the rubber pool duck rings are alive and want to be free.
Soos: The inflatable pool duck revolution is at hand!
- Towards the end of the episode, he manages to "free" them.
- Dipper has to guard the pool supplies from more looting. He has to stop Grunkle Stan from entering and stealing in the pool, and Mabel from stealing the cooler to save Mermando and Soos from freeing the duck rings.
Dipper: Is Soos here too!?(Soos climbs over the fence behind Dipper. Dipper doesn't even turn around)Soos: I'm ok.Dipper: (still not turning around) Go home, Soos.Soos: You got it.
- Dipper asks if Stan is the one who's been destroying pool supplies. Stan protests that his crime is much better, and that he's going to steal the chair before Gideon. He then adds "and then maybe I'll wreck some pool stuff. Night's still young."
- As Mermando told Mabel to never reveal his secret, Dipper had no idea why Mabel was trying to steal the pool supplies. His reaction when he finds out:
Dipper: Whoa! Way to bury the lead, Mabel.
- The entire 'Reverse CPR' scene.
Mabel: [takes picture] Hah, blackmail!
- "Thank you for saving me, but... why didn't you just roll me into the lake?"
- Mabel mentions never meeting anyone like Mermando, except for a zombie, some gnomes, and some vampires.
Dipper: I don't remember the vampires.Mabel: I don't tell you EVERYTHING.
- Dipper's reaction to Mermando kissing his sister: "Whoa! Okay! That's gross!"
- After Mabel and Mermando have their moment:
Mabel: (dancing in excitement) Woohoo! That was my first kiss! (poking Dipper) Hey, it was also kinda your first kiss too, huh? Huh?Dipper: (shuddering) Please don't involve me in this.
- Mermando's letter to Mabel in the end:
"Our first kiss will always hold a place in my heart. ...technically hearts. As a merman I have... like, 17 hearts. Horrifying, but true!"
- "OW, MY HEAD! IT HIT ME RIGHT ON THE HEAD!"
Stan: "OW, MY HEAD! Why am I even out here at night?"
- And again at the end:
- Dipper's reaction to Mabel having a sleepover with her friends.
- One of the films in Mabel's rom-com collection is titled "Oh No She Di'n't!"
Candy: Boys make me think about kissing!Grenda: Candy! Oh my gosh! *throws a pillow at her face*
- Dipper decides that having a wolf gnaw on his leg is better than the noise from Mabel's sleepover.
- The aftermath of the sleepover. Somehow, Candy winds up duct taped to the ceiling, Mabel wakes up with "Party Gurl" written on her forehead, and Grenda emerges from the closet covered in kiss marks.
Grenda: I don't know what I was kissing in there, but I have no regrets!
- Apparently Dipper keeps Mabel up with his late night reading.
Dipper: Oh ho! Hm... Interesting. But who stole the capers? Hmm... (begins rapidly clicking pen)
- Grunkle Stan's choice of television:
Grunkle Stan: (Watching two guys shoving each other) Fight! Fight! Fight! (Changes channel to two deer bucking heads) Fight! Fight! Fight!

Fight!Announcer: BABY FIGHTS!Grunkle Stan: TV, it knows what I want!Subtitle: I didn't come here to make friends.
- Dipper wandering around the Shack looking for a place to sleep while abel and her friends have a slumber party. He first asks Soos to use his break room, which turns out to just be a crawlspace full of searingly hot pipes, and he finally resorts to sleeping outside.
Dipper: Ahhh, this is better *suddenly notices that a wolf has shown up and begun gnawing on his leg* AAAAHHH!!!! SHOO!! SHOO- *glances up to the attic window and sees the slumber party in full spring* ....this is still better *lets the wolf keep gnawing*

- Soos' reaction to a stranger saying she'll marry him and planting a kiss on him is to shrug and go with it.
Woman: (Crying) I don't think I can do this anymore... You just seem so different!Soos: Look, dude, uh, I'm playin' a little bit of catch-up here... I was in a pig's body for most of the day. Wha-what's goin' on? (Beat) Can we kiss again? Is that an option?
- Then, during the credits;
- Waddles in Soos body just randomly flailing around and bumping into things, having no idea how to stand on two legs.
- At the beginning where Wendy and Dipper are watching the cameras.
Dipper mimicking customer: Do you have this t-shirt in my size?Wendy mimicking Stan: I have something even better! Behold, my butt.
Dipper: Ahahaha! (suddenly staring longingly at Wendy) I could play this game forever...Wendy: What'd you say?Dipper: Coughing! I was coughing! Those weren't words!
- As they laugh at this, Dipper resumes his habit of declaring his love for Wendy under his breath.
- "You're making my dance sad."
- Dipper giving Waddles a triumphant hug when it looks like Wendy's going to break up with Robbie.
- Candy, after hearing that the concert is sold out, deciding to simply faceplant and mumble "I welcome you, death."
- "I'm not going to let a 'Keep Out' sign keep us out!"
- Stan casually stocking up for the apocalypse while singing about how everyone's gonna die.
- Stan's flashback ends with his ex-girlfriend's hot-pants literally turning into bell-bottoms, and her and her new hippie boyfriend taking off like a rocket, leaving a trail of rainbows.

- After seeing a commercial announcing that Gideon plans to put his Tent o' Telepathy where the Mystery Shack is, Dipper asks if they should worry:

- And then it does.
- Jeff and the Gnomes think Gideon is a girl, Gideon's reaction and tone of voice is actually hilarous!

- When the Mystery Shack is about to overrun by zombies, Soos states that that he's completely prepared, due to seeing dozens of horror movies. One of the zombies manages to bite and infect him as one of their own..... and he acts exactly the same he was before, aside from his new-found craving for brains.
Zombie!Soos: On second thought, gonna flip the script. Can I... eat your brains? "Yay" or "nay"? Seein' some "yay" faces over here.
- The cure for zombieism apparently involves loads of formaldehyde... and cinnamon.
Zombie!Soos: RRRRRRAGH - Ooh! "Gossiping Housewives" is on!Zombie: (Offscreen, confused) Rrrrrrg?Zombie!Soos: Eh, I already sat down.

Mabel: I could do this all day.Mabel: (when the zombies attack) I say "Mabel," you say "Pines!" Mabel!Everyone: (screams)Mabel: Mabel!Bystander: We're all gonna die!Mabel: Why does that never work?
- "Zombies and gentlemen! I'm Mabel, they're Dipper and Stan, and together we're Love Patrol Alpha!"
Dipper: I never agreed to that name!
- Stan's response when Mabel tries to get Dipper and Grunkle Stan to sing karaoke with her so that they can create a three-part harmony and destroy the zombies.
Stan: Uh, Mabel, our lives may not be worth this.
- Dipper singing the song's first two lines:
Dipper: "Friday night and we're gonna party 'til dawn. Don't worry daddy, I've got my favorite dress on?!" Mabel, this is stupid!

- When Mabel locks Dipper and Wendy into the closet and yells at Dipper to tell her "the thing you've been wanting to tell her" ( Dipper's crush on Wendy, of course):
Wendy: What's she talking about?Dipper: Nothing! Mabel's just been eating raw sugar packets again!Mabel: (munching on packets of sugar) That's beside the point!
- After Soos and Mabel realize Dipper wasn't lying about a monster being in the caverns:
Mabel: I thought he was just joking!Soos: You know Dipper's jokes are terrible!
- Mabel and her light-up sweater.
Soos: Dude, aren't electric clothes a fire hazard?Mabel: No. It's a fun hazard.
- One that's definitely of the dark humor sort. After the Shape Shifter cruelly taunts Dipper one last time before being flash-frozen by transforming into him screaming and contorted in terror, claiming it'll be his "final moments":
- "I'm all adventure-d out. My face is tired from doing this all day." (Makes a "screaming in terror" face)

- The scene during the credits, with the "Gravity Falls Bargain Movie Showcase".
- In the original storyboard when Dipper and Wendy got locked in the decontamination chamber, Dipper was banging at the door telling Mabel to open up.

- Apparently, Mabel sent an article to the Gravity Falls Gossiper (Newspaper) about summer fashion tips for squirrels.

Stan: Pacifica Northwest declares V-necks the look of the season; What am I looking at here?
- Stan questioning Pacifica's picture in the newspaper.
Stan: Is it legal for a child to wear that much makeup?
- The Gravity Falls royal discount Putt Hutt commercial was eerily specific and coincidental.
Mabel: I need something to take my mind off of this.TV: Looking for a distraction from your horrible life?Mabel: Why, yes!
- "And the pig can look after the house!" Cue a confused grunt from Waddles, as if he's asking "Who, me?"
- "Hey, those are lewd hand gestures!"
- Dipper whiffs his first swing at the first hole of the mini-golf course, and his ball promptly rolls off the green and into a water hazard.

- This exchange:
Mabel: Are you guys tiny humans, or enormous mini-humans?Franz: Neither; We're Lilliputtians! Lilli, lilliputt... the name makes more sense written out than spoken.
- Dipper and Mabel complimenting the Dutch Lilliputtians' ability to control the balls and sink a golf ball into a hole.
Mabel: That's amazing!Dipper: And so needlessly complicated!
- When the Dutch Lilliputians get ready to elaborate through song Dipper turns them down. When everyone groans and leaves, Franz makes a perfect frowny face.
- During the showing of the Eiffel Tower hole, the French Lilliputtians say this:
First Frenchman: Shut your mouths, you showboating pirates! Everyone knows ze Eiffel Tower hole is ze best in ze park!Second Frenchman: Je ne sais quoi, sacre bleu, au revoir!
- Mabel's reaction to the vicious battle between the tribes of Lilliputtians: "Your fighting is inadvertently adorable!"
- How Dipper justifies using the help of the Lilliputtians to beat Pacifica.
Dipper: Pacifica's rich, Mabel. She's cheating at life!
- The constant petty bickering between the tribes of Lilliputtians is hilarious at times:
Franz: (to the Pirate Captain) I will not be insulted by a man with no depth perception wearing earrings!
- Big Henry, the muscular Lilliputtian's Heroic Sacrifice was played so dramatically it was even kinda hilarious, especially interspersed with a brief moment where Pacifica and Mabel are just waiting for the golf ball to reappear.

Mabel: Why can't you just get along?(beat)Dutch Lilliputtian: Because we hate each other!Pirate Lilliputtian: That's kinda how rivalries work, lass.
- Pacifica gets tied up by the Lilliputtians and she says she'll go call her parents. She asks where her phone is, and some of the Lilliputtians have it, one writing up a message just saying "U R DUMM" to one of Pacifica's friends, all the while giggling.
- Franz's narrow-minded assumption at what's better than beating Pacifica in mini golf. Killing her, right?
- Dipper assures Pacifica's mini-golf trainer, Sergei, that he can't possibly drown in the shallow waters around the Pirate hole. Sergei falls face first into the water. Also, he's tied up.
- When rescuing Pacifica from the Dutch Lilliputtian's Death Trap, Pacifica proceeds to critique Mabel for taking so long, and warns her to "watch the earrings, they cost more than your house!" Mabel sarcastically reconsiders rescuing her at all, at which point Pacifica quickly backtracks, prompting a "that's what I thought!" from Mabel.
- Pacifica's trainer Sergei falls off the back of the cart during the big getaway chase. Pacifica looks back and, after a moment of silence, pragmatically says "I can get another one".
- Pacifica's rage at the Lilliputtians calling her and the Pines "dumb huge-lings" while banning them from the Putt Hutt.
Pacifica: What did you say to me you little trolls? I will sue you! I will sue and I will own you! (Punches closed door)
- Pacifica initially rebuffs Mabel's offer of a ride home, until lightning strikes, signaling more rain incoming. Cut to her completely nonplussed and slightly frazzled in the back seat, surrounded by the silliness that is the Pines Family.
- Stan's upbeat song that reveals the cars headlights don't work and he can't see the road.
- Mabel teaches Pacifica about sharing... literally; Pacifica has never even heard the word before and pronounces it with a hard 'r' when trying to sound it out.
- Mabel and Dipper dropping Pacifica off at home.
Mabel: At the end of the day, she's an ordinary kid just like us.(Gate opens to reveal giant mansion, fireworks, peacocks roaming the courtyard and an illuminated victory sign)Dipper: ...Should have charged her for that taco.Mabel: Agreed!
- Franz follows the Pines home by clinging to the back license plate of Stan's car, and gleefully vows revenge on them all - until a bump in the road dislodges him, and he gets hopelessly wedged in a clump of sand by the ditch.

Sergei: Can I go now?Liliputtians: NEVER!

Mabel: People's eyes will get wet. Cause they'll be crying. From laughter! From how tragic it is.
- Bill Cipher returns, and with him, his unique sense of humor.
Dipper: There has to be some shortcut or clue [to this laptop's password]. Who would know about secret codes?(The moon turns into Bill's eye, and his body constructs itself around it)Bill: I THINK I KNOW A GUY! Did you miss me? Admit it, you missed me!(later)Bill: Hey, wanna hear my impression of you in about three seconds? (screams and flails his arms about)Dipper: (wakes up screaming and flailing his arms)

- "This sock crisis just bumped up to Code: Argyle!"
- "You look like a vampire, and not the hot kind!"
- Bill exploring Dipper's body and the pain he can bring it. Among other things, he falls down a set of stairs with a totally casual expression for no reason at all, stabs himself with forks and slaps himself in the face in front of Dipper, in ways that would be horrifying if he weren't being so hilariously casual and chipper about it.
<cheerfully, while slamming Dipper's arm in a drawer> "Boy, these arms are durable!"
- Bill getting a can of soda from the fridge, gleefully declaring that he's "gonna drink it like a person!", and pouring into his open, unswallowing mouth and eyes. All while laughing.

Dipper!Bill: Hey Soos! Wanna hear the exact time and date of your death?Soos: Heh heh, okay!

- Grenda as the stage manager.
"The show is about to begin! Please turn off your cell phones... unless you're texting me, cuties!""Our intermission has begun! MILL ABOUT!"
- Also, Grenda and Bipper's interaction:
Grenda: The journal's in the cake, but that doesn't come down until the third act. So hold your horses!Bipper: Oh I'll hold my horses. I'll hold them. Beat. You monster.
- When Dipper possesses the sock puppet version of himself in an attempt to warn Mabel:
Mabel: AAAAH! It's come to life! The puppet books didn't warn me about this! (throws a fork at the Dipper puppet)Dipper: Mabel, it's me, Dipper! You need to help me!Mabel: Wait, what... Dipper? But you're... so much more of a sock than usual.
- Mabel apparently thinks a "biscotti" is some type of sports car.
- "Wanna kiss and sing at the same time?"
- Mabel referring to Bill-in-Dipper's-body as "Bipper".
- "Woah, children fighting! I can sell this!"
- How does Mabel defeat this unstoppable being of pure energy with no weakness? By tickling him and letting him chase her around in circles until he gets tired out.
- "Yes! I'm back in my body! And it's...just as underwhelming as I remember. Ohhhh...everything hurts..."
- The result of the pyrotechnics Trashing the Set of Mabel's puppet show. Mabel reassures Dipper by telling him that the audience will think it's All Part of the Show and clap for the extraordinary performance. The audience boos them off and leaves in frustration, and Gabe makes out with his sock puppets for comfort.
- The aforementioned trashing of the set is just as funny: a slow-mo explosion of all the puppets as "Ave Maria" plays and the Stan puppet falls in flames. And then Gabe makes the most overdramatic face imaginable.
- The bonus code screen at the end of the episode.
- The image is hilarious. The cipher, when translated...not so much.
- The Stinger, which has Stan and Old Man McGucket as Statler and Waldorf-esque puppets critiquing the Dipper and Mabel sock puppets.

- When Goldie breaks down, Wendy encourages Stan to throw him out on the grounds that "Its face reminds everyone of the inevitability of death."
- Soos' first attempt at flirting. "Attempt" being the operative word.
Soos: (slightly stilted) Your face is good. I'm a Soos!
- Which causes the girl he was talking to to scream in fear, and run out of the store while shoving a customer out of the way and knocking over some shelves.
- "Just use your mouth to say words that makes romance happen."
- At the mall, Soos expresses being afraid of embarrassing himself again, and Mabel attempts to cheer him up.

- Earlier, the game screen shows the developer, "Year 2000 Electronics."
- Giffany tells Soos that "Every time you compliment me, I get another highlight in my eyes!" He starts giving her compliments and her eyes get so big and shiny they end up looking like this◊.
- "Dang! Where dem sweet honeys at?!"
- Mabel, nearly veering into Bi the Way territory, barging into the women's restroom to find a date for Soos and scaring everyone away.
Mabel: "I'll check the ladies bathroom. It's love time, girls! Get out there! No time to wash your hands! (every woman in there runs out terrified) It's time to date, date, date!"Dipper: ...aaand here comes security.
- After Soos accidentally bumps into a lady shopper and tries desperately to undo the situationnote , the lady ominously responds with "You can't undo who you are." Really, the bizarre tonal shift with that little bit is hysterical.
- When Giffany is explaining to Soos what happened when her creators tried to delete her and she had to "delete" them, there's a scene of several figures on computers. One of them has a stream of binary on their monitor, which when translated reads SPACEJAMTWO.
- When Giffany offers to be with Soos "forever and ever":
Soos: That's awesome! Sort of a red flag... but mostly awesome!

Wendy: I'll get your orthopedic back pillow.
- Stan tries sneaking out of his own house through the front window for no reason, then injures his back.
Stan: Thank you.
- Giffany stalking Soos on his date is creepy, but his response is rather amusing:
- This line referencing a common online debate:
Soos: Guys, I'm being stalked by Giffany! ...Or maybe it's pronounced "JIFfany"? I was never really sure.
- (in cheerful Machine Monotone) "Hello, friends. Hoo-Haw the Owl is dead."
- "I'm going to eat your face like pizza!" Which is also potential Nightmare Fuel.
- Soos's battle plan.
Soos: I'm so sorry, Melody. It's me that she wants. I'll distract her while Dipper and Mabel keep you safe! It's the only way!Melody: Soos, these are children.Soos: THE ONLY WAY!
- Melody admitting that a date involving being attacked by sentient robots and dealing with a Yandere AI is actually NOT the worst date she's been on.

IT'S A GREAT IDEA
WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE
THIS WAS A MISTAKE (WHAT)
- This episode has a lot of really great fake product names:
- Wendy reads a magazine called "Avoiding Eye Contact Monthly."
- Soos buys the game with Giffany in it from a place called "Beebly Boop's Videogames", with a perfect imitation of the Gamestop logo and font.
- There are stores in the mall called "Overalls Are Cool Now" and "Build A Beaver".
- The local Hot Topic pastiche is named "EDGY on PURPOSE".
- The arcade games at Hoo-Haw's wrecked by Giffany include "Virtual Owl Trowel" and "Life Avoider".
- Stan and Goldy sit in a bath tub drinking glasses of "rich people water".
- The last third of the episode as a whole becomes particularly hilarious when you consider that it involves possessed animal animatronics at a pizzeria. Given the Animation Lead Time (especially in a traditionally animated cartoon like Gravity Falls), it's very unlikely any of this was intentional.
- Hirsch had to point that out, in fact. Which somehow makes it funnier.
Little Gift Shop of Horrors
- The intro, with Stan acting as the host of a horror anthology show:

- Stan adjusts to the loss of his hands pretty quickly. "So I might've got cursed a little..."
- Stan's attempts at living without his hands. It does NOT go well. Examples include:
Clerk: Hey Mr. Pines! Shall we play "toss me a dozen eggs" like we always do?
- Stan lifting his fez to Lazy Susan, only to freak her out when she sees he has forks for fingers. Then he gets one of the forks on his fake hands stuck in his face.
- Stan attempting to bowl, only for his bowling ball to slip out of his hands and trip Tyler, whose own ball flies up into the ceiling and smashes one of the score monitors, which nearly lands on another bowler.

Handwitch: A kiss on the LIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPS!!!Stan: WHAT?! Forget it! I'm not kissing any of that mess! I don't need my hands that bad!

- Waddles squealing angrily at the goat chewing on his pillow, then shooting a fusillade of foam missiles at it.
- "My kite got stuck in a tree! I hate everything!"
- Waddles giving Grenda a jetpack and Candy a death ray.
Candy: Death to my enemies!
- The pictures of "Waddles's ???th Birthday, Probably" has Mabel and Waddles just eating a big bowl of cake frosting and sprinkles, with a few candles in it.
- Waddles using his masterpiece machine to feed himself potatoes.
Smart!Waddles: Yummy yummy! For my fat little pig tummy!
- Smart!Waddles is voiced by Neil deGrasse Tyson. This makes the above line, as well as him trying to shoo the goat that's pestering him, at least twice as hilarious.
- Waddles' flashback montage is as touching as it is silly.
Just remember to remember those times!
- Mabel threatening Stan off-screen for trying to sell Waddles to the viewer.

Stan: "Movies are great! You watch the movie, you scare the girl, the girl snuggles up next to you, next thing you know you gotta raise a kid, your life falls apart... Forget that last part."
- "Ooh, old people movies! Get ready for references we don't understand, and words we can't repeat!"

"I actually watched this."- A Critic"My favorite movie!" - MomRated O for Old People

Soos, Stan, Dipper: Ugh!/Boo!/Everything about this is bad!
Stan: Welp, that put me ninety-minutes closer to death.
- Stan tries to console Mabel about her fear shortly after breaking into the animator's house.

Society of the Blind Eye
- Jeff the gnome threatening to resort to cannibalism if the other gnomes don't succeed in getting Lazy Susan's pie.
- After Lazy Susan is abducted; "Well, back to pie! I was this close to eating you, Steve.
- Dipper accidentally biting into his pen, and throwing it into a box for chewed-up "thinking pens".
- Mabel lamenting her bad luck with boys after learning Mermando is engaged to the queen of the manatees for political reasons.
Mabel: (points to a picture of Norman) Turned out to be gnomes... (points to Li'l Gideon) Child psycho... (points to Gabe) Made out with his own hands...
- Doubly funny is that Mabel considers the manatee queen to be beautiful.
- "Rappers are visionaries, Wendy. If they told me to eat my own pants, I would do it!" Guess what the next verse of "Straight Blanchin'" involves?
- "Straight Blanchin'"'s entire existence in the show, as a parody of annoying summer Ear Worms (and to a lesser extent, top 40 music in general). Its lyrics consist of little but "Am I blanchin'? Girl we blanchin', I live up in a mansion!" (Aside from the "eat your own pants" bit.)
- "Why is Soos eating his own pants?"
- Wendy throwing Soos' CD out the truck window, and then immediately realizing she was overreacting.
Wendy: ....I'll buy you a new one.
- "Mabel, are you okay? You just walked by a cat without petting it."
- Lazy Susan's recollection of her gnome sighting.
Lazy Susan: Well, I was leaving the diner, and I saw these bearded little doodads, and I was like, "Whaaa?!"Blind Eye Leader: There, there... you wont' be "like wha" for much longer.
- McGucket Symbol Swearing in hamboning.◊
- After the ominous meeting, the members of the Society of the Blind Eye wander off, jovially telling each other "Un-see you later!"
- "Man, you have got to teach me some of them old-man swear-words!"
- Robbie's memory-wiping session, in which he recalls the events of "Fight Fighters" and, after a little prompting to be honest, begrudgingly admits he got saved by a twelve-year old.
- Mabel showing Wendy her opening line for talking to a guy.
Mabel: "Hi, I'm Mabel! I'm twelve and I own a pig, wanna get married?"
- From that same scene, Wendy's impression of a guy involves wrapping a lock of her hair around her face in imitation of mutton-chops and saying "Testosterone!" in a gravelly voice, then spitting.
- McGucket while hiding from the Order, notices his own Pointless Band-Aid.
McGucket: Hey, why does my beard have a bandage? Does that even make sense? Why has no one pointed that out?
- A little less funny when you realize it's been there for years and he's only just remembered it.
- Everyone's extremely distressed confessions as they're about to have their memories erased.
Soos: Mabel, for half of the summer I thought your name was Maple, like the syrup. No one corrected me!Mabel: I only love some of my stuffed animals and the guilt is killing me!Dipper: Sometimes I use big words and I don't actually know what they mean! I mean, I'm supposed to be the smart guy! If I'm not the smart guy, who am I?!Wendy: Okay, I'm not actually laid back. I'm stressed, like, 24/7! Have you met my family?!
- During their final goodbyes just a moment later, Soos blurts out, "I'm gonna miss you, Maple!"
- During his Big Damn Heroes moment, McGucket supplies the gang with prospector-era weapons from the museum. Dipper gets a stuffed raccoon on a stick, and Soos got an informative plaque about Dysentery.
Soos: (Holding up Plaque threateningly) Nobody better mess!
- Even better, a member of the Order flees when Soos holds it up and threatens them with dysentery.
- After it's revealed one of the members wears nothing but his underwear in his robe...
Soos: (holds memory ray to head) Well, time to erase that forever.
- After wiping the Blind Eye society's memories of their society, Dipper tricks them into thinking they were just visiting the museum and to give their donations to the gold miner (McGucket). Looks like his Grunkle has rubbed off on him a bit.
- Also a bit of Heartwarming when you consider that the money will help McGucket.
- Mabel giving Blind Ivan a fun new identity. And a banjo.
Mabel: Your name is Toot Toot McBumbersnazzle! You’re a traveling banjo minstrel with a song in your heart and funny tattoos on your head!
- Scrawling "Butts" on Ivan's head. With a permanent marker, no less.
- At the end, Wendy remarks that the episode's events have helped her get "Straight Blanchin'" out of her head. Guess what's playing on the radio of Soos' truck.
Wendy: Oh, come on!
- After Mabel decides to learn from her failed summer romances rather than try to erase the memories of them, she gets the others to help her vandalize a poster of Gabe Bensen from Sock Opera.
- "He's either the bravest time-convict I've seen, or just the dumbest!" Cue Blendin crashing into a wall, tripping over some barrels, and spraining his "time-knee". "Definitely the dumbest."
- "Oh, time-dangit!"
- The twins' reactions when the vending machine fails.
Mabel: Everything is terrible forever!
- "Forget taking off the wrappers! I'm eating these now!"
- *cough* *cough* "That was a mistake!"
- Soos mentions that he would do anything for the Pines family.
Stan (off-screen): Soos! I need to scratch myself in two places at once!
Soos: And I mean anything. Coming, Mr. Pines!
- Soos apparently keeps "emergency salami" in his wallet.
- When Mabel announces she's always wanted a surprise party, Candy appears out of nowhere and, with a cry of "Surprise!", throws confetti over Mabel. Mabel just gives her a dirty look and says "Too little too late, Chiu."
- "More exclamation points! More, I say!!"
- Stan apparently tried getting the government to remove Soos's birthday from the calender. Now he's not allowed on planes.◊
- Toby Determined as "The Razz Dazzler" is so sad, it's hilarious.
Toby: (in a cheery voice) Razzle dazzle, friends! It's me, the Razz Dazzler! This is what my life has become!
- And in the past, Mabel sees Toby learning how to tap-dance, and bluntly tells him "This dream goes nowhere, Toby!"
- Mabel's odd laugh after she tells Soos that Dipper and she "definitely didn't rifle through [Soos's] wallet" to find out that he likes laser tag.
- The cheesy "Mission Briefing" at the laser-tag place:
Announcer: It is the year 8000! Society collapsed! Fog machines, everywhere!
- Grunkle Stan and Wendy talking about the laser-tag place:
Wendy: Are these walls just mattresses spray-painted purple?Stan: I think this place used to be a mattress store.
- "Kick: Deflected! Thank you for buying DigiCod®, the Smart Codpiece!"
- Dipper and Mabel's inability to remember Blendin's name. "Blar-blar!"
- Mabel's reaction to the horrors of Globnar:
Mabel: ...Is this a game show? Are we in Japan?
- Mabel tries to distract Lolph by claiming to be his "great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother", complete with Dipper prompting her on how many greats to add. Even more hilarious, it works!
Lolph: (after Dipper and Mabel steal his time-tape) Gam-gam, how could you?!
Mabel: I ain't no one's gam-gam, sucka! You just got time tricked!
- After the twins teleport too far into the past:
Mabel: Time travel, man! Why you gotta be so complicated?!
- Blendin threatens to 'keep stammering' until Lolph and Dundgren find the twins, which references not only his speech patterns, but those Justin Roiland uses in his other characters, like Morty and Lemongrab.
- Irony occurs when the twins are in the past and they encounter Wendy and Tambry (at five years old.) Tambry tells Dipper that Wendy thinks he's cute. Dipper's embarrassed and confused by it while Mabel teases him that this is probably how Wendy feels, cue epiphany from Dipper.
Dipper: Aha, thank you, I mean you're super young so this is weird.Mabel: Now you know how she feels, creep.Dipper: Aha, yeah I...wow...wow.
- The running gag of (young) Robbie shooting someone with his water gun.
- Also the fact that at one point, he calls himself "Young Robbie". It's a Call Forward to Robbie in the present calling himself "Laser Tag Robbie", but that it's young Robbie calling himself young for no real reason makes it doubly funny.
- When the twins surrender, Lolph warns Dundgren to be careful since they're from the past and "they might have powder muskets or slap bracelets."
- Lolph muting Blendin mid-sentence, and Dundgren wishing that they'd known they could do that earlier.
- Time Baby resisting the formula from the robot, and then later drinking all of it before another robot comes along and pats his back so he can burp.
- The much hyped final challenge of the gladiator games Blendin challenges Dipper and Mabel to turns out to be.... laser tag.
Blendin: I know it doesn't seem that challenging now, but just wait until they turn on that fog machine. You'll be done for! You just wait till you-
- Dipper easily wins the challenge by shooting Blendin before he has a chance to run off.
- After defeating Blendin, the Time Baby asks the twins what fate they will decide for the loser.
Mabel: DEEEAAATH! (Dipper: Mabel!) Sorry, I got carried away.
- "Yes! I got my job back! I'm so happy I could hug someone!" "I can kill you in eight different ways." "Yes, sir!"
- Soos' wish, which has a triple pointage for being this, Crowning Moment of Heartwarming and Crowning Moment of Awesome. Instead of wishing to see his deadbeat father, he wishes for Dipper and Mabel to be cleaned up. When Blendin' explains how he completely wasted a time wish, Soos exclaims that he also wished for a slice of "Infinite Pizza", which regenerates after every bite. Everyone is impressed.
- When Time Baby enters the Globnar arena, he yells, "SILENCE!" The whole crowd falls silent except for one fan, who continues cheering enthusiastically. Said fan is shot and killed by Time Baby's Eye Beams.
The Love God
- The twins cloud-gazing with Wendy and her friends:
Mabel: Woah, that cloud looks like a chipmunk!
(An airplane flies through the cloud)
Wendy: Heh, barfing an airplane.
Thompson: (points to a waffle-shaped cloud) That cloud looks like, uh, a cloud.
Other Kids: Boo!
Wendy: Thompson, stop being the worst at everything!
- Dipper making fun of Thompson throughout the episode and earning the approval of Nate and Lee.
- If you pause when Wendy is flipping through Tambry's phone, you will see a list of bands that are going to be playing at the Woodstick festival, including acts such as "Scarves Indoors" and "Wood Grain on Everything".
- "Gaze upon death! Gaze upon death!"
- The horrifying thing Thompson finds in an open grave in the cemetery... a moping Robbie clutching a picture of Wendy and wailing about his misfortune.
Wendy: It's really sweet you threw yourself into a grave for me, but man, time to move on.
Wendy I miss you so much, I'll never move on, never ever.
- Immediately after Robbie lies to Wendy about moving on from their breakup, we hear that his ringtone is a song he wrote about her.
- Upon realizing that the song is playing, Robbie immediately chucks his phone into a tombstone shattering it, and claims that the song was written about a "different" Wendy.
- "Shattering" is putting it mildly; Robbie's phone disintegrates.
- "The cemetery used to be fun, now it's just depressing."
- Robbie telling a vulture to just eat him already and end his misery. It does.
Robbie: Aah! I was just being dramatic! Quit it! Ow! My face! Vulture!
- Mabel bragging about her match-making successes, including Waddles and Gompers the goat... who have been dressed in wedding attire and duct-taped together.
- Stan's horrified reaction to realizing the Woodstick festival is coming to town, including threatening to take a crossbow to the hot-air balloons passing overhead.
Stan: Soos! Lock down the shack and hide my shirts before anyone tie-dyes them!
- Robbie's parents are very cheerful and friendly... and they're also funeral directors. Wherever they go, Black Comedy follows.
Valentino Funeral Home
If you were dead, you'd be home by now!
- "I used to think you were a creepy jerk, like the human version of rat poison."
- "Uh huh... go on..."
- Mabel trying to find a match for Robbie. "Multi-Bear? I'm putting you in the 'maybe' pile."
- Wendy's friends duct-taping snacks to Thompson's body to smuggle into the music festival.
- A chalkboard in Greasy's Diner reads "Ask about our steak dinner! We don't have one!"
- When Mabel meets the Love God, he hands her a beat-up old cassette tape of one of his albums. She says "Oh, that's... great!" with forced cheeriness as she discreetly tosses the tape in a nearby trash can.
- "They're gonna make a snadger!"
- "Will you accept squirrels as payment?!"
- Mabel swapping one of the Love God's potions for a squirrel.
- Nate punching Thompson's mailbox after the group has a falling out over Robbie hooking up with Tambry.
Thompson: NOT MY MAILBOX!!
- Even better is that he hurt his hand doing so.
- Mabel criticizing Dipper's shirt, and Dipper agrees!
Mabel:...Also, you are not pulling off that v-neck.Dipper (sighing): I know.Mabel: BURN IT!
- "Guy from the ten-dollar bill! I forgot I had a crush on you!"
- Grunkle Stan's hideous hot air balloon modeled after his own head. Especially when it starts to fall apart.
Stan: Let 'er rip!Soos: Oh no! A letter rip! (jumps and ducks)Stan: What the H?! (the letter H falls on Stan, while the R follows suit)Original Message: I HEART KIDS
Modified Message: I _EA_T KIDS (At this point it's also on fire)
- The over-dramatic music that plays as it terrorizes everybody is the icing on the cake.
- Before Brad Breeck wrote the score for the scene, the music used in the storyboard scratch-track was "Duel of the Fates".
- "It's heaven's punishment for our terrible taste in everything!"
- When Charlie asks his mother if the floating head was going to eat them, the mother replies yes, crying and hugging him as the balloon slowly descends upon them. The whole scene is practically straight out of a monster flick.
- The over-dramatic music that plays as it terrorizes everybody is the icing on the cake.
- When the Love God gets back his anti-love formula, he boasts that "only a greater being from the heavens above" can stop him. Cue Grunkle Stan's balloon crashing on top of him.
- "What's everybody crying about? In my day, zeppelins fell from the sky like raindrops!"
- Love God's response to a groupie asking him to sign her face: "Only if you sign mine, baby. LET'S GET WEIRD!"
- Mabel and Dipper crowd surfing to escape The Love God. Mabel is of course enthusiastic about it, while Dipper is...not.
Dipper: "No no no everyone's touching everything!
- The Love God, crowd surfing after the Twins, takes a moment to greet fans and hand out more cassettes.
Northwest Mansion Mystery/Noir
- When all the plates and chairs are attacking the Northwests at the beginning of the episode.
Preston Northwest: You are my possessions! Obey me!
- Dipper preparing for a 48 hour marathon of "Ghost Harassers" on the Used to Be About History Channel
Dipper: *sips a Pitt cola* Be strong, bladder. We're not gonna move till sunset.
- Mabel, Candy and Grenda reacting to the bulletin about the party.
In unison: Ooooooooo!
- The start of the episode shows Mabel, Candy, and Grenda in awe of the Northwest family's standard of living. Dipper is having none of it.
Dipper: Guys, in case you've already forgotten, Pacifica Northwest is the worst - and that's not just jealously talking. I'd say that to her face. *opens door to reveal Pacifica*Pacifica: I need your help.Dipper: ...You're the worst. *slams door*
- Candy and Grenda saying "Dreeeeeeaaaaam!" in unison, complete with big sparkling eyes.
- "Wooo! Des-perate! Des-perate!"
- Mabel messing with the face of a completely unfazed butler.
Butler: Nyes, very good miss.
- Pacifica's completely deadpan and unphased expression at Mabel, Grenda and Candy's antics. At this point, she's clearly become desensitized to their silliness.
- The Freeze-Frame Bonus about Marius Von Fundhauser's past:
Guest Book Description: After inheriting his father's cravat and epaulets factory at the age of 7, Marius Von Fundhauser quickly rose to prominece as the richest rich boy in Richardson Richington's Rich Boys Richcademy, furtherrich, he richly riched rich rich rich rich rich, rich rich rich. Rich,

- When she first enters the mansion you can see that Mabel has, once again, gotten the glue-gun stuck to her clothes◊.
- Grenda doing the "something on your shirt" trick to a party guest, flicking his nose, and then going "LOSER!" Then she pulls it on Marius, to Mabel and Candy's dismay...and he actually likes it.
- Mabel, Candy, and Grenda's nervous laughter when they "agree" not to pursue Marius von Fundshauser.
- The 102-year-old mayor of Gravity Falls, whose entourage includes a trio of vultures that circle around him waiting for him to die. And when the lumberjack ghost appears at the party, Mayor Befufftlefumpter casually goes "Ah, the Grim Reaper. I've been expecting you."
- This exchange between Dipper and Pacifica as they are about to confront the ghost:
Pacifica: So what? Are you going to bore him back into the afterlife by reading from this book?Dipper: Just gotta splash this sucker with some anointed water, and he should be out of your... probably fake blonde hair.Pacifica: What was that about my hair?
- Dipper and Pacifica's first encounter with the lumberjack ghost? Horrifying. Dipper's reaction to the journal's only advice for a category 10 ghost being PRAY FOR MERCY? Hilarious.
Dipper: Aw, seriously?
- Candy being torn between cheese and chocolate fondue:
Mabel: Candy, listen to me carefully. You're caught in a sweet-savory loop. Put the fondue fork down.
Candy: ...I want to, but I can't...
- Pacifica hugs Dipper out of relief after they've defeated the Lumberjack ghost, then realizes what she is doing. Cue awkward silence, followed by this line:
Pacifica: ... Can I pay you to pretend this never happened?
- Just the noise the peacock makes when Dipper accidentally runs into it.
- When everyone starts turning to wood, there's a woman who was caught mid Spit Take.
- It's sandwiched between tense moments, sure, but there's Dipper telling Pacifica that the ghost "started rhyming, for some reason."
- The Northwests thanking Dipper after he captured the Lumberjack by having a butler shake his hand for them.
Mrs. Northwest: We can't thank you enough... that's enough.
- Dipper's exorcism chant.
Dipper: Exodus demonus... spookus scarus... aintafradus noghostus...
- Pacifica's father having her trained to respond to a bell? Disgusting. His indignation when she starts to stand up against it? This.
Preston Northwest: Dingley dingley! Is this bell broken?
- He also has a moment of good black comedy right before that: "We'll eat the butler!"
- The lumberjack ghost's final lines:
Lumberjack Ghost: Yes, yes, it's happening! My heart, once as hard as oak, now grows soft, like more of a birch or...something.
- Tyler the Cute Biker doing his signature "Get 'em! Get 'em!" when Pacifica opens the gates to the Northwest Mansion, complete with glistening eyes.
- Even better, he's saying "Get in, get in!"
- At the beginning of the episode, Preston Northwest was very adamant on how the silverware was placed. When the townspeople stampeded into the mansion, Tyler picks up a fork to look at it then sets it down.
Preston: That's not how the fork should be placed!
- The Stinger involves Agents Power and Trigger (the latter Disguised in Drag) having an argument in a coat closet at the party that sounds Like an Old Married Couple. Then Tambry walks in
Tambry: Not even gonna ask. *Turns around and leaves*
- Agent Powers' disguise uses a fake moustache...even though he has a similar looking real one underneath.
Not What He Seems
- From the last trailer before the episode airs, we have video proof of Alex Hirsch's Trolling Creator status:
Puppet!McGucket: IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!Alex: (Stage Whisper) Ignore him...Puppet!McGucket: ALEX! THE END IS NEAR!!!
- "Can't be too careful with this stuff," says Stan as he casually wipes radioactive waste on his forehead.
- The firework brands, with such gems as "The Heart Attack", "The Lawsuit Maker", "Poor Choices", "Boom!", and "Cop Callers".
- After Stan uses said fireworks, this exchange happens.
Blubs: Hold on a minute, do you have a permit for those?Stan: Uh, do you have a permit for being totally lame?(Dipper, Mabel, Stan, and Blubs laugh)Blubs: Well, I can't argue with that. Carry on. (Leaves with Durland)
- The scene where the Government guys swarm the Mystery Shack is dramatic, but has some hilarious moments:
- "Pig secured! We have secured a pig!"
- "What did I do that warrants this much arresting?!"
- One agent "secures" Mabel's popsicle, looks around to see if anyone's watching, then has a lick of it.
- After everyone's been arrested Wendy shows up for work... and then very quickly walks the other way when she sees government agents swarming the place.
- After Agent Trigger takes Dipper and Mabel into custody in the FBI-mobile, they pass Wendy sauntering up the road on her way to work. She reaches the Shack, notices the hordes of SWAT Agents combing the scene, and promptly about-faces and marches away.
- Among the articles of evidence on the agent's corkboard at the police station are an old report card of Stan's with straight A's in English, math, and science, but a D- in phys. ed. (including a note from the agents that the first two seem unlikely)note , a tattered Stan Buck, and a black-and-white photo of the Stan Vac.
- When Soos gets his mission from Stan to guard the vending machine at the Mystery Shack: "It's time for a repair-guy to become a repair-man!". Cue the drive thru attendant popping up: "Sir, your Junior Yum-Yum Baby Time Kiddo Meal?"
Soos: Just put one in my mouth. (Vendor puts a fry in his mouth; Soos eats it while squinting his eyes before driving away).
- How do Dipper and Mabel escape from Agent Trigger? Mabel baits Manly Dan (apparently a closet fan of Sev'ral Timez) into running Trigger's humvee off the road by writing "Sev'ral Timez is overrated" in the dust on the window.
- McGucket packing up to get out of town... including his raccoon wife.
- The SWAT guys on the Rock That Looks Like a Face Rock:
SWAT member: So... is it a face, or is it a rock?Other SWAT member: I think... it's a metaphor.
- While searching for proof of Stan's innocence, Dipper first comes across footage of Mabel and Wendy egging on Soos to do The Worm. Mabel insists they had no choice once the song came on.
- On the security tape, Stan drops something on his toe and yells "HOT BELGIAN WAFFLES!"... before remembering that he's alone and gleefully noting that that means "I can swear for real!"
Video!Stan: SON OF A—(Dipper pauses the video, Mabel clasps her hands over her ears)
- During his grand escape from police custody, Stan casually pickpockets one of the Government Agents' wallets.
- The very end of the episode, when the Author comes out of Stan's portal... and he's Stan's long-lost brother.
Mabel: Is this the part where one of us faints?
Soos: Oh, I am so on it, dude. (faints)
- Mabel: I AM THE GOD OF DESTRUCTION!!
- Agent Powers' explanation for how he and Agent Trigger survived the zombies in "Scary-Oke":
Powers: I used Trigger as a human shield. He cried like a baby.Trigger: Hey! Not in front of the special-ops guys!...
- This exchange after one of the anti-gravity surges:
Tyler: Is it just me, or did the entire world just hiccup?Lazy Susan: Maybe it was a baby-sized earthquake!Tyler: Aww! Baby-sized!
A Tale of Two Stans:
- "Hi! Mabel here, quick question: What the heck is going on here?!"
- The Author referring to Soos as "some kind of giant hairless gopher." Soos gleefully admits "I get that a lot."
- This exchange:
The Author:Greetings! Do kids still say greetings? I haven't been in this dimension for a very long time.Mabel: Whoa, six-fingered handshake! That's a full finger friendlier than normal!Author: Ha ha! I like this kid! She's weird!
- Dipper is so overwhelmed to be meeting the author of the Journals, on top of all the events of the previous episode, that he almost throws up.
Dipper: [bent over clutching his stomach] No, no, false alarm... *hrggh!* [strained] Just gotta ride it out...
- This line from Soos, which is probably what was going through certain fans' heads at the moment:
Soos: I hope all this aligns exactly with my fanfic, Stan. If not, I will be very disappointed.
- Stan describes his parents;
Narrator!Stan: Dad was a strict man; hard as a cinderblock, and not easily impressed.Stan's father: (Reading a newspaper with the headline 'ATOMIC AGE BRINGS MEGA CORN') I'm not impressed.Narrator!Stan: Mom was a pathological liar, which served her well in her job as a phone psychic.Stan's mom: (Answers phone) That'll be 99 cents an hour. No, you're overpriced! Yeah, I predicted you were gonna hang up.
- Young Stan and Ford shouting "Kings of New Jersey!" with their boat and covered in sunburn.
- The gleefully horrible advertisements that Grunkle Stan did for his various cheap products, featuring names like the "Rip-off" bandaid, and a parody of the sham-wow that actually used the word "sham" in the title.
Past!Stan: The "Rip-Off" won't give you rashes! I repeat, it WON'T give you rashes!Narrator!Stan: It gave you rashes. (Gilligan Cut to Past!Stan being chased by people with rashes)
- Grunkle Stan being chased out of New Jersey by angry customers vielding Torches and Pitchforks. Luckily, they had purchased Stan Brand Pitchforks which fall to pieces as they hold them up.
- On top of that, Stan was such a sleazy scam artist, he got banned from New Jersey! NEW JERSEY!
- When The Author gets to the creation of the Journals, Dipper keeps interrupting his story with his fan-boy squeeing.
- While it's part of a very serious scene, it's hard not to laugh at Grunkle Stan telling his brother, "You think you have problems? I have a mullet!"
- It's revealed that Grunkle Stan accidentally caused Lazy Susan's lazy eye. Bonus points for assuring her that it wasn't permanent.
- During the credits, Soos tries to bring Wendy up to speed on recent events.
Soos: OK, OK. So it turns out that the second Stan, the Stan that we know, was actually Stanley but the first Stan was Stanford but we didn't know until that Stanford came out of the portal which was built by Stanford but then Stanley pretending to be Stanford, he did the portal cause he's Stan but he's not Stan.Wendy: (Sitting in bed with a tired expression) Soos, it's 3 in the morning.
- The following exchange:
The Author: Tell me, Stan. Are there any security breaches? Does anyone else know about this portal?!The Author: The what?!
- "And so the Murder Hut was born. Later renamed the Mystery Shack."
- Why didn't beachcombing work out for Stan? "Apparently gold is some kind of rare metal."
- Stan's "sophisticated new business strategy," Scratch-N-Win tickets.
- Stan and Stanford grew up in an area of the Jersey shore called "Glass Shard Beach". As soon as Stan mentions the name, a seagull perching on the sign coughs up a large chunk of glass.
- Stanford reminding us how much of a Fish Out of Temporal Water he is, asking for floppy disks and 8-Tracks.
- The New Jersey Science Fair banner bears the inspiring slogan, "What, you think you're some kind of smart guy?"
- Ford acting ridiculously paranoid. For example, when Stan opens the door:
Ford: (savagely pointing a crossbow at Stan) Who are you? Have you COME TO STEAL MY EYES?Stan: ...Well, I can always count on you for a warm welcome.
- When Ford summons Stan to Gravity Falls for his help, Stan underestimates just what he's about to get into.
Ford: I have something to show you. Something you won't believe.Stan: (sounding unimpressed) Look, I've been around the world, OK? Whatever it is, I'll understand.(cut to a bewildered Stan inside the Portal Room)Stan: There is nothing about this I understand!
- Ford's "report" to the government agents are crayon drawings of "The Snadger" and a giant Mabel crushing cars with fire behind her and the words "What Hath Science Wrought?!"
- Ford feeding the flashdrive with all the data on Gravity Falls to Gompers.
- At the end, when Stan and Ford are looking in the mirror, we get this exchange:
Stan: Look at us. When did we become old men?Ford: You look like Dad.Stan: (shudders) Oh no, don't say that!
Dungeons, Dungeons, and more Dungeons
- Dipper trying to sell the concept of the titular board game and its absurdly complicated rules to Mabel, Soos, and Stan in rapid succession (Mabel is quickly scared off, Soos is more involved with FCLORP (Foam and Cardboard Legitimate Outdoor Roleplaying) than the tabletop, and Stan finds the idea of not gambling with dice almost as laughable as the Purple Prose in the rulebook).
Stan: Ha! Look, kid, I prefer to do my dice rolling in Vegas.
- After running out of friends to dungeon-dive with him, Dipper resorts to playing DD&MD with Gompers.
Dipper: Aw, nice! You rolled a seventeen! (beat) ...and this is sad. Maybe I should start obsessing over Wendy again.
- During Dipper and Ford's first game of DD&MD:
Ford: Alright. You've entered the chamber. Princess Unattainabelle beckons you!◊
- When Ford finds out that Dipper is a fellow Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons enthusiast, he dramatically declares that he and Dipper must PLAY! Then the Cycloptopus latches onto his head. Ford just pulls it off without changing expression, leaving half of his face covered in red welts.
Ford: That's…going to leave a mark.
- The creators of Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons apparently tried to make the game 'cooler' in The '90s. We get to see a hilarious commercial for it, involving a wizard in pastel-colored streetwear, rapping, and insane amounts of Totally Radical, to the point where the game is renamed "Diggity-Dungeons and All That".
Dipper: (shudders) Must've been dark times, those 90s.
Ford: Yeesh. Sounds like a good time to be trapped between dimensions.
- Stan's Nightmare Fuel fan art of Ducktective - a beaver with a turkey's head stapled on, wearing a deerstalker hat. It's messed up, even for this show. It's even accompanied by a Scare Chord.
- Stan defending Duck-tective when Ford dismisses it as a kids' show.
Stan: I'll have you know that Ducktective has a big mystery element and a lot of adult humor that goes over kids' heads!
- Most of Probabilitor's lines qualify, especially as he's voiced by "Weird Al" Yankovic:
"Mortals of dimension forty-six-apostrophe-backslash! Kneel before me and-" (rolls dice, then bends over for a better look) "-snivel!"
"I am Probabilitor! The greatest wizard in all mathology! Give or take an error of 0.4."
"Hot Elf! Ready the brain-cooking pot!"
"My butt isn't part of this particular equation!"
"No! How did you get past my one guard?!"
"C'mon, guys, this game is fun! I had my mom pack me a lunch." (Pulls out a Ziploc baggie) "Apple slices?! Ugh, I'm eating you last."
(Upon summoning an "Ogrenado") "It is what it sounds like!"
- Stan, Mabel, and Grenda gearing up for battle. Stan grabs his trusty baseball bat, Mabel picks a garden rake, and Grenda just lifts an armchair.
- Stan, Mabel and Grenda walk through the forest to save Dipper and Ford from Probabilitor.
Stan: We must be getting close, these fairies are getting bitey. (swats one on his shoulder like he would a mosquito)Fairy: (stunned and covered in pink blood) Hey! Look! Listen!
- As Mabel, Grenda, and Grunkle Stan travel through the forest, they're confronted by one of Probabilitor's evil minions, who tries to force them to undertake seven quests in order to pass. Grenda effortlessly brains it with the armchair.
Mabel: (looking concerned) Is he... dead?Stan: He's magic, sweetie. I'm sure he's fine. (whispering to Grenda) There's no cops in the forest. We take this to our graves.Grenda: (winks)
- Dipper and Ford after being turned into game characters.
Ford: Ah! My ears! They're so pointy!Dipper: There better be something protective under this tunic. (checks underneath tunic in horror) OH NO THERE ISN'T!
- Mabel creates a monster in DD&MD:
Mabel: "I cast Centaurtaur!" (A centaur with a second, upside-down horse extending from its neck appears)Stan: "Mabel, I am so confused and so proud right now."
- Mabel and Grenda continually fawning over Hot Elf (yes, that's actually his name!). Coupled with the fact that Hot Elf acts like a disaffected teenager all the time.
- Everyone feeling ripped off by the reveal that Duck-Tective had an Evil Twin brother, and Soos claiming that he had long ago predicted this twist.
- Throughout the Duck-Tective scene, Duck-Tective's quacks are translated into English via subtitles. When his twin is revealed, he lets out a terrifed quack. The subtitles translate this as "(terrified quack)" as if they were suddenly closed captions.
- If you're a Portal fan, hearing JK Simmons be such a stickler about safety regarding portals is plenty hilarious in its own right.
- The credits scene with the LARPers, and Officer Durlands speech about maybe they descend into fantasies because their real lives are unfullfilling and its easier than working on self-improvement.
Sheriff Blubs: Fortresses cant talk, Durland.
The Stanchurian Candidate
- The entirety of Stan's Cold Open. At the beginning, he gets out of bed only to find his slippers soggy;
Note: Dear, Stan. I needed something to carry my milk, so I used your slippers. Love, Mabel
- Dipper and Mabel's reaction to Stan announcing his candidacy.
Mabel: Grunkle Stan, it's not that we think you can't do it, it's just...Dipper: No, no, Mabel, it's okay. We don't think you can do it.
- Apparently, Mayor Befufflefumpter's death was the most eventful thing to happen in a while. So much so that the anchorwoman reporting it cries tears of joy when finally presented with the chance to tell actual news.
- Mayor Befufftlefumpter was apparently possibly responsible for World War 1. Somehow.
- When Stan decides to run against Bud for mayor, the two of them have this exchange:
Bud: Stanford? No offense, but you're just some two-bit carnival barker, and your head is more ears than face!Stan: Oh yeah? Well your face is more fat...than...not fat!Crowd: [gasps]Tad Strange: (barely raising his voice) Oh snap!
- And Dipper's opinion of Mayor Stan.
Dipper: I know Stan isn't the best candidate. Heck, he's committing voter fraud right now.(Cut to Stan shoving piles of ballots in the voting box)
- Dipper consulting Ford for a mind-control tie:
Dipper: "...And he insists on speaking his mind!"
- Dipper and Mabel (mostly Mabel) testing out the mind control tie by making Soos eat a pine cone.
- Tad Strange. Just... Tad Strange.
Soos: Everyone in this town is a tad strange. Except, ironically, Tad Strange.
- There's just something utterly hilarious about getting the guy who played Cecil Gershwin Palmer to play the most normal person in Gravity Falls.
- The fandoms reaction to his revelation is pretty hilarious too; theory after theory tried to discern who “Tad Strange” was, from a distant relative of Dipper and Mabel, to Ford’s third partner, to another dream demon, only to find out it’s actually this◊ guy.
Tad Strange: Hi, everyone. Tad's the name, being normal's my game.
Mabel: Loving you, Tad!
Tad Strange: And I love bread!
- Dipper explaining Gravity Falls mayor electoral process. It consists of two events, "the stump speech" (which is performed on an actual stump), and the debate. Which consists of the crowd throwing bird seed at their preferred candidate, and at the end they release the "Freedom Eagle", who flies to the candidate covered in more seed to deliver a "birdly kiss", anointing them mayor.
*beat as everyone in the room stares at Dipper blankly*Dipper: I couldn't make this up if I wanted to.
- And it all makes perfect sense when you consider it was doubtlessly set up by Quentin Trembley.
- And when the eagle is released at the end of the debate, it actually does kiss the winning candidate.
- Stan's radio interview. He states he could take or leave the American flag due to too many stripes when asked about it, he wants to have kids engage in a Lord of the Flies scenario while teaching them swears to 'bring them in the real world' when asked about kids' education, and is cut off as he asks for clarification on whether the interviewee means 'crime in general or his crimes specifically' when asked about crime in Gravity Falls.
- The phones set up for the interview. Along with a normal phone, there's also a hamburger phone (which is the one Stan uses) and a whale phone.
- And mere seconds after the interview is cut off, Wendy reveals that people are already making motivationals based on Stan's lines.
- Stan's many crimes include "shoplifting", "teaching bears to drive", something he invented apparently called "burglebezzlement", "first degree llamacide", ("That llama knew too much!") "first degree thermometer theft", and "pug trafficking". One of the ultimate cases of Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking.
Stan: Whew, at least they didn't list any of the bad ones. On an unrelated topic, I have a lot of cheap pugs and I need to move them fast.
- A Freeze-Frame Bonus, but the other crimes that show up on the television screen are "Snacks evasion", "pickpocketing", "woodpecker baiting", "impersonating a dentist", "general indecency", "golf cart theft", "bingo fraud", and "telling jokes that just go on and on, I mean, we have things to do".
- Even funnier if you remember who's Stan's voice actor.
- Ford's offhand mention that he created the mind control tie for "Ronald Reagan's masters."
- Bud's Gosh Dang It to Heck! outburst, which he still apologizes for.
- When he talks to Gideon, he reveals he kept an enchantment for times like that. Bud argues that he thought they agreed not to use other "spooky spells", but Gideon immediately starts casting it. Once again, the spell's text is actually a backwards message. What does it say this time?
- Dipper and Mabel arguing over what they should have Soos say, while both are still controlling him.
- Stan's response to the mention of Gideon's imprisonment:
Stan: That was a good day.
- When Bud is contacting Gideon, the latter mentions that he can't sleep because his cellmate took his pillow for a wife.
- Also, when Gideon complains about how horrible prison is, Ghost Eyes and another convict pop up and ask if he wants to take part in making friendship bracelets. Gideon's response is "I have finger painting at the same time!"
- "Kids...if I die... Make sure I get a bigger tombstone than Ford."
- The way the twins nod firmly sells it.
- The twins and Stan finally bury the hatchet at the end, as Stan saves them both from falling and hauls them up a rope.
Mabel: We're sorry, Stan. We should've supported you, win or lose.Dipper: Probably lose.Stan: I can still drop you, y'know.
- Tyler the Cute Biker's stump speech must be seen to be believed.
- And then his beauty queen reaction when he wins.
Tyler: (Whispers) "Got it!" *sniff* "...Got it!"
- And then his beauty queen reaction when he wins.
The Last Mabelcorn
- Mabel's unicorn toy in the cold opening; "Princess Loveycorn says..." "Buy my 42 accessories!"
- Dipper boasts that he and Mabel have defeated Bill Cipher twice:
Mabel: Once with kittens, and once with tickles!
Dipper: It... was a lot more heroic than it sounds.
- Mabel's mad ranting about how much she loves unicorns. Among the things she mentions: her first word was unicorn, and she once made her own unicorn by attaching a traffic cone to a horse. Cut to a poster of Mabel and said horse with the caption "BANNED FROM PETTING ZOO."
- Also her attempts to persuade Ford to let her go unicorn hunting.
Mabel: Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplase I'LL GIVE YOU MY BLOOD!
- Ford give Mabel a crossbow. While he can be forgiven for this, as he's been out of the dimension for a while, this is Mabel. She doesn't even last a minute before taking out a window.
- In "The Stanchurian Candidate", one of Stan's list of crimes was "pug trafficking." Here we see him loading up a truck with pugs and telling the driver he has twenty-one hours to get them across the border.
- Even better is Stan's off-screen reaction to the above gag with Mabel.
Stan: IT'S THE COPS! GUN IT!
(sound of tires squealing and pugs yipping)
- Even better is Stan's off-screen reaction to the above gag with Mabel.
- Grenda's deep voiced chanting.
- The whole thing with Wendy and Mabel's bet.
- Upon seeing Celestabellebethabelle for the first time, Mabel and Candy gasp in awestruck wonder; Grenda follows, only to inhale a butterfly and start coughing.
- While swearing that she's going to make herself the nicest, purest person ever, Mabel gets a little overenthusiastic and punches a bird out of the air.
Mabel: That bird's fine.
- The montage of Mabel doing good deeds like picking up snails stranded on the sidewalk, planting a tree (right outside the back door of Toby Determined's office), slaping a smiley-face sticker on Grunkle Stan's face, and giving blood (she faints afterwards), ending with a Blipvert of her helping an old lady with her groceries, stopping traffic to let some ducks cross the street (while Manly Dan yells in the background), dumping glitter over the statue of Nathaniel Northwest, and stuffing Lazy Susan's tip jar with money.
- One item that Mabel's checked off on her list reads "abolish electoral college". How she managed that is never explained.
- Well, she IS a congressman
- The storyboarded version of this montage is even better, including scenes such as Mabel chasing after a garbage truck carrying a water bottle so she can recycle it instead, all set to Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation".
- One item that Mabel's checked off on her list reads "abolish electoral college". How she managed that is never explained.
- Among Dipper's thoughts are excited squeeing that he's working with the author of the journals, him singing "Disco Girl", and the word "WENDY" repeated over and over.
Dipper: Might wanna...ignore that last one.
- Also on that note, a thought about "that red swimsuit" and "maybe if I cross my legs, nobody will notice". Puberty is truly a cruel mistress.
- The machine that translates Dipper's thoughts to text allows him to have a conversation with his own thoughts. Limp noodle that he is, his own brain eventually convinces him to try out the machine on Ford.
Dipper: Wow, I am really good at rationalizing.Dipper's thoughts: Yes you are! Yes you are! Yes you are!
- Wendy, Candy and Grenda make plans on stealing the unicorn hair, and Grenda picking up and smashing a boulder with her head.
Grenda: Shh! Sleep now! Slee~p
- How about when Grenda chloroforms a satyr who attempts to do an S.O.S. with his pan pipes? And what she says while doing so:
- The gnome playing five finger fillet with the tip of an acorn.
Old Gnome: It ain't mine! I've been framed!Gnome cop: Tell it to the adorable owl we dressed up as a judge!
- The whole pixie dust sequence. It's like a fairy tale version of an illicit drug trade, with gnome cops showing up as part of the sting, and getting a cut from Grenda.
- One of the unicorns playing rave music from its horn, bobbing its head to the beat.
- Celestabellebethabelle's reaction when the two unicorns reveal that they can't actually tell if a person is pure of heart, and just say that to get humans to leave them alone.
"Guuuuys... shuuuuuuuut up!"
- Eventually, Mabel and the girls just decide to beat the unicorn up for its hair. And, they do so well, the other unicorns give them a box of treasure to just leave them alone.
- In a dramatic flashback, Bill taunting Grunkle Ford in such a casual manner about how he won't be able to stop what he's planned
Bill Cipher: Looks like Mr. Brainiac finally got smart! Let's just say that when that portal finishes charging up, your dimension is gonna learn how to party!
- After the girls show the treasure they got from the unicorns, Stan immediately just runs by and scoops some of it up, gleefully shrieking "MONEY!"
- Just before that, Mabel says that she has learned that "Morality is relative." The alarmed looks from everyone else make it even funnier.
- "Woah, don't have a heart attack! You're not 92 yet!"
- Celestabellebethabelle's hilarious falsetto voice, courtesy of Sam Marin.
- Stan mentions one of the previous pranks his competitors pulled on the Shack:
Stan: Last year, those hooligans duct-taped Soos to the ceiling.Soos: That was a fun seventy-eight hours.
- Dipper tries to chat up a girl at the Biggest Ball of Yarn... and fails in an epic fashion. "My name is Dopper!" is just the icing on the cake.
Dipper: Whenever I try talking to girls, I just unravel like.... (Mabel, Grenda, and Candy continue to unravel the Biggest Ball of Yarn) ....the metaphor isn't coming to me right now, but you get what I mean.
- Later, when he describes what happened when he tried to talk to the girl:
- Stan calling their first target "The Most Blackhearted Proprietor in all of Oregon"... only for the sign to show a sweet looking old lady.
Stan: Don't let the face fool you, this woman set my car on fire on two non-consecutive occasions.
- He's later proven right post sabotage after said woman throws a giant needle at their RV.
- "A girl gave me her email... and it wasn't out of pity! Woohoo!"
- The montage of Stan pranking the other attractions, from turning the upside-down house right-side up to unleashing hungry beavers on Log Land to releasing corn weevils at the corn maze.
- When Mabel and Grenda find out that Candy is crushing on Dipper, the scene cuts to Dipper and Stan in the hot tub, the screen shakes from the force of their combined Squee!.
Stan: Man, coyotes sound worse than I remember.
- Stan trying to be nonchalant about the fact that Darlene turned out to be a spider-person and is planning to suck out his vital fluids and add him to her mummy museum.
Grunkle Stan: Turns out Darlene is one of those spider people, but beyond that the date's been okay.
- Grenda's proposed name for her baby: Grenda 2, the Sequel. Mabel approves.
- When Candy gets upset over Dipper having flirted with other girls, Grenda tries to calm her down by shouting "There, there! Let the soothing sound of my voice calm you!!" And it works!
- A desperate Stan prays for help.
Stan: (praying) Please, I don't know if your really up there or not, but if you are... please save me Paul Bunyan!Grenda: (offscreen) Mr. Pines!Stan: Whoa, did that really work?
- The Mystery Shack gang trying to escape on a ridiculously slow tram ride, specifically designed for tourists to admire the view at their leisure.
Dipper: Ugh, can't this thing go any FASTER?!
Tour Guide Recording: (Calmly) No, it can't. This is Trambience®.
- It's hilarious in a meta way how the writers teased CanDip in this episode, only to sink it in the end when Candy admits she's "over" Dipper after seeing him run like a baby from the spider monster.
- Stan insisting "I completely don't deserve this!" when the other owners retaliate.
- Fire Retardant Raccoon, the Smokey Bear Expy.
"Don't hug forest fires."
- Darlene's line after being smashed underneath the Paul Bunyan statue's foot:
"My one weakness: a giant boot! A giant newspaper or giant cup of coffee woulda also been pretty bad."
- Soos gets left behind in the middle of a corn maze and The Stinger reveals he's still stuck in there. He decides to use his grandmother's advice about getting lost which is to stay where you are.
Soos: You know, I would make a really good scarecrow.
- The reason he got left behind was when Stan asked if everyone was in the RV, Mabel answered "probably", which was good enough for Stan.
Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future
- Mr. Upsidownington, and Dipper's snarky guess at his message being actually spot on.
- Grunkle Stan's reason for looking forward to the twin's birthday week: his old man's ponytail kit is coming in
Stan: I'm... I'm going through some things.
- Ford calls Dipper into another room to deal with Ford's face being on fire. When Dipper arrives, Ford is fine and says that he only talked about his face being on fire to get Dipper to come faster... except he has smoke coming from his stubble.
Dipper: But your face is on fire.Ford: Yes. It's much faster than shaving.
- Ford's backup plan for dealing with Weirdmageddon. By using the alien adhesive to...literally glue the earth back together.
- Dipper tried to psych himself up for his first major mission with Ford... and immediately runs into the doorframe. Then apparently trips offscreen.
- Wendy doesn't like High School. Robbie doesn't like High School. Thompson? REALLY does not like High School.
Thompson: I can't do it! I CAN'T DO ANOTHER YEAR!
- "My hormones are a sweaty cage!"
- Dipper's reaction to the crashed UFO.
Dipper: You... I... Words not working for mouth!
- Ford mentions that after years of raiding a crashed UFO for parts, his reaction at this point is, "Eh."
- Ford's advice for Dipper doing a giant magnet slide down a giant column:
Ford: Say "hup!" It helps!
- Ford tells Dipper he can flip any switch he wants since the whole facility they're in is powered down. Turns out the switch Dipper pushes ends up activating a giant metal trapdoor that swallows Sprott's barn.
- Sprott's reaction to the disappearance of his barn, which is to stare in confusion for a second before asking his cow, in a mildly indignant tone, whether she just ate the barn.
- Stan assuring Mabel that just because her body grows up doesn't mean she has to:
Stan: I'm pushing 70 and I still eat ice cream for dinner!
- After Mabel discovers how terrible high school is going to be.
Mabel: Why aren't they singing about following their dreams? TV taught me that high school is like some sort of musical.
Weirdmageddon Part 1
- For Black Comedy Body Horror at its finest, say hello to Bill shuffling around all of Preston Northwest's facial orifices!◊
Pacifica: Da-ad!Preston: (Chiding) Shh, the adults are talking, sweetie.
- And then there's Pacifica's reaction to Preston's schmoozing. She sounds like her father's just said something embarrassing to her friends, instead of trying to become The Quisling.
- Bill Cipher manages to hijack the opening sequence, twisting it into a parody focused on himself and the other demons.
- The reversed message at the end of the theme song. I'm watching you nerds!
- Rather than the typical shot of Bigfoot darting between the redwoods, there's instead a quick cut where a walking pine tree runs past a forest of giant wooden feet.
- Ford has this to say about witnessing The End of the World as We Know It:
Ford: So this is how the world ends. Not with a bang, but with a (makes the cuckoo sign) boop-boop!
- Bill turns Stanford into a gold statue, and then uses him as a back-scratcher.
- Soos's grandmother assuring him he should be helping his friends... after being turned into a talking armchair.
- Stan threatens to throw Gompers off his property when a weirdness wave turns Gompers into a giant. Stan's reaction:
Stan: (calmly) On second thought, I'm gonna run like a coward now.
- A starving Dipper finds food in the Gravity Falls Mall while searching for a way to defeat Bill. It turns out to be a trap laid by Wendy.
Dipper: Help! The nachos tricked me!
- Doubley funny when you consider that one of Bill Chiper's fan nicknames is an Evil Nacho.
- According to Wendy, Robbie almost escaped as well, but then "paused to take a selfie".
- Wendy reveals what her family does every year instead of Christmas: Apocalypse Survival Training.
- When Wendy tells Toby Determined to stay at the mall and guard it:
Toby: (emerges from behind a curtain dressed in punk gear with a mohawk) I'm not Toby anymore! From now on, call me Bodacious T!Wendy: Nobody is ever gonna call you that.Toby: (sighs sadly)
- While Bill Cipher and his demon friends are partying in his pyramid, Time Baby and the Time Police arrive to try (and fail) to stop him from destroying the world. Bill's reaction is like that of a teenager's party getting crashed by normal police:
Lolph: This is the police! Time Police!
Bill: (to the other demons) Okay guys, play it cool! Hide the time punch! Let me do the talking!
Lolph: Bill Cipher, you are in violation of the laws of space-time, as well as possessing the body of a time officer!
Blendin Blandin: My body is a temple! How dare you!
- The constant, goofy Mad Max references as Lil' Gideon and his prison crew become "Discount Auto Warriors".
- Gideon's pig-like scream when Wendy punts him.
- When Dipper and Wendy pass through the weirdness bubbles, they briefly morph into birds, anime caricatures, talking meat, and their voice actors (Jason Ritter and Linda Cardellini) dressed as them in live-action. Li'l Gideon and Ghost-Eyes follow them and turn into crude low-polygon CGI reminiscent of Money For Nothing, female versions of themselves, and old-timey "rubber hose" cartoon characters, complete with jazz music and a silent movie caption-card.
- Soos has good news and bad news. The good news, Wendy's arm isn't broken. The bad news?
Soos: We are surrounded, dude.
- And the camera zooms out to show it.
- The giant head/arm creature (formally named "The Horrifying One-Armed Sweaty Monstrosity") asking people to get in his mouth.
HOASM: Anybody wanna get in my mouth? I'm a big monster, I'm a big, hungry monster here! I would really appreciate it if someone- You, ma'am! You, ma'am, how would you like to- (Woman screams) Anyb — HELLO? Hey, hey, sir! Sir... Eh, false alarm. It's just a bird. Not one person. Not one person has gotten in my mouth. I don't care anymore. I just… (sighs) I gotta call my mother.
- Even better: it's voiced by Louis C.K.! Even as an animated monster, he's still playing a balding, redheaded loser who can't get anything right.
- To make it funnier, Alex Hirsch revealed that they had about 30 minutes of Louis just improvising different ways a monster could beg people to get into his mouth. Just imagine the guy doing what you see in the show for thirty minutes.
Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality
- For Black Comedy, Sprott's doomsayer prophet routine in the Cold Open.
"I reckon I've been living a lie!"
- "Ladies, gentlemen, that creature with like eighty-seven different faces..." "Eighty-eight different faces!"
- The gang's first impressions of Mabeland.
Dipper: Aaand this is worse than the apocalypse.
Wendy: Dude, this place hurts my eyes...
Xyler: Oh, that's normal. Mabeland's rainbows have colors only bees and art students can see.
- The entire existence of Dippy-Fresh, a Totally Radical version of Dipper Mabel made as a "backup". Dipper takes an instant dislike to his skateboarding doppelganger.
- Soos is about to give Dippy Fresh a high-five until he gets a scornful look from Dipper. Soos goes ahead with the high-five anyway.
Soos: Sorry, dude, I can't leave him hanging! (high-fives Dippy Fresh)Dipper: You're dead to me, Soos.
- Bill's irate "Walk it off!" when Pacifier mentions he might have broken something after they splat into the bubble surrounding Gravity Falls and fall to the ground.
- Before that, there was "Global domination! I could get used to tha... WHAT!?"
- What's Wendy's greatest desire? To stick a plunger to the face of her high school principal and vandalize the place. Though considering how much she hated high school in "Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future", this might not be much of a surprise.
- Judge Meow-Meow Face being distracted by a piece of string.
- Being voiced by Jon Stewart just makes it even better.
- Xyler and Craz have degrees in "hunkability"... and international and criminal law.
- Craz ends his opening statement by saying "Hand me a microphone, Xyler." He then proceeds to do a Mic Drop.
Xyler: Totally righteous, bro!
Craz: Are we brothers?!
Xyler: I don't know!
- Dipper, Mabel, Wendy, and Soos make it back to the Mystery Shack, only to hear a suspicious noise from inside. They prepare for an ambush, and open the door to find... literally everyone who managed to escape Weirdmageddon: Grunkle Stan, Old Man McGucket, Sheriff Blubs, the biker dude from "Headhunters" and "Summerween", Candy and Grenda, Pacifica, the Gnomes, Celestabellebethabelle the unicorn, the guy who married a woodpecker, Chutzpar the Manotaur, and even the Multi-Bear, who pops his head in to let everyone know they're out of toilet paper, and asks "Did I miss something?"
- In the ending, Xyler and Craz end up in the real world and end up having a Totally Radical philosophical discussion about Sartrean existentialism.
- The Stuffed Animal Tree song:
Stuffed Animal Tree: Bo-ba-do-do, I'm a stuffed animal tree!
Stuffed Animals: And we're the stuffed animals, tee-hee-hee!
- When Dipper skips a rock across a pond in Mabelland, each skip is accompanied by the sound of a giggling, cooing baby. It's a babbling brook.
- Dipper's jury of his peers consists of six Mabel clones, each of which act as silly as the original.
- When Xyler and Craz compliment them, one of the Mabels randomly turns sideways in midair and rolls over the others happily, in complete defiance of the laws of physics.
Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls
- Soos hugging Stan and telling him he's been practicing on strangers to prepare himself for their reunion. Then Wendy saying they missed him and affectionately calling Stan a "codger".
- This gem:
Dipper: So, what's everyone doing here?Mabel: Yeah, there's like monsters and gnomes, and is Pacifica wearing a potato sack?Pacifica: Hey! Even in a sack, I still look better than you!
- Wax Larry King's head saying that he's hungry, and eating Grenda's hair when no one feeds him.
Wax Larry King: Hey, is anyone gonna feed me? Larry King's disembodied wax head wants num-nums.
- Even funnier when the Multi-Bear promptly closes the vent on him so he'll stop.
- Stan, as self-appointed chieftain of the Mystery Shack survivors, tells the kids his long-term plans for the group: to eat "brown meat" from cans until they run out, whereupon they will begin eating the gnomes
Jeff the Gnome: Hey, I'm short, not deaf!Stan: *shushing him* Shh shh, stress will make you chewy.
- Stan goes on to explain how the remaining townsfolk and creatures ended up at the Mystery Shack.
Stan: I was hammering signs out back when the sky started vomiting nightmares. I watch a lot of AM radio, so I knew what this meant. The end of the world...
- When giving his Rousing Speech, Dipper is at a loss to what Toby brings to the table, to which Toby offers "Various rashes!"
- McGucket realizes there is a way to take the Mystery Shack to Bill, and we get another one of his unusual exclamations. He apologizes for getting so excited and slaps his leg when it starts thumping eagerly.
Fiddleford: Holy hootenanny! Flapjack and fiddle banjos!
- Then he lays out the schematics for his newest invention. "All right. I've made some thingamadiculous robomajigs in my day, but this is the first one that won't be used for evil!"
- McGucket has never heard of "anime". Soos spends part of the building montage showing him anime.
- Also, look closely at what Pacifica is doing at the beginning of the montage; reading a magazine in that "I'm too cool for this crowd" way.
- There's something hilarious about Stanford being released from petrification, only to be greeted with the sight of Bill Cipher playing the piano, singing "We'll Meet Again".
- After repairing the front door of the Fearamid from when the Time Police burst in, Bill is annoyed when the Shacktron smashes it again.
- Soos tries to convince the Henchmaniacs to stand down but first tries to check the microphone, causing the Shacktron's PA system to blare and force the Henchmaniacs to cover their ears wincing.
Soos: Uh, I just wanted you monster dudes to hand over Ford or we'll have to like, fight and junk. (Points at Pacifier offscreen) Hey, you're a little cutie!Pacifier: I have butchered millions on countless moons.Soos: Whoa, I liked you better before you talked.
- After the Shacktron defeats the Henchmaniacs, Teeth runs across the screen while on fire.
- When Bill exits the Fearamid to destroy the Mystery Shack and capture the twins, he enlarges his fist and raises it to pound the shack to dust. He then takes a moment to straighten his tie, complete with comically squeaky sounds.
- Right before the rescue team skydives into Bill's pyramid, Pacifica has this to say.
Pacifica: Just so you know: if I die, I'm suing all of you!
- "I found Ford, and he's golden..." (pan to reveal the petrified Stanford) "...but not in a good way."
- Tad Strange returns for a quick cameo when the human throne is unfrozen, saying happily that this experience has forever scarred him.
- Preceded by Robbie saying that he thinks he's now "dark and tortured for reals."
- Ford begins spray-painting the giant Zodiac symbol on the ground. Dipper notes that they don't have much time left. Ford just shrugs it off saying "Yes, yes. Good, good." while Stan remarks that his brother has finally lost his mind.
Pacifica: The world's most confusing game of hopscotch?Ford: No, a prophecy. Although it... would be a really fun game of hopscotch.
- Then we zoom out to get a reveal of the Cipher circle.
- Wendy immediately pegging Robbie as part of the circle due to the logo on his hoody.
Wendy: That one's easy! [Shoves Robbie into the circle] You've been rocking that dumb hoody since the seventh grade!
Robbie: Woah, destiny hoody!
- Gideon's place on the Cipher Wheel is right next to Mabel, much to her displeasure
Mabel: (glaring) Don't try and make this into a big deal.Gideon: Oh, I won't. (whispers to himself) I will!
- When Stan is refusing to to complete the circle, Robbie complains that "I've never held hands for this long before and I'm starting to feel uncomfortable!"
- So after all the build-up for the wheel in the prophecy that could vanquish Bill and stop the apocalypse, what ends ruining the plan and making two seasons' worth of build-up and secrecy a gigantic Red Herring? Ford condescendingly correcting Stan on his grammar after being pushed to grudgingly thank him for getting him out of the portal.
Stan: "See, between me and him, I'm not always the bad twin!"Ford: "Between 'him' and 'me'. (silence as Stan is getting increasingly pissed and Dipper and Wendy look on in horror) Grammar, Stanley."Stan: "I'll 'Grammar, Stanley' you, you stuck up jerk!" (Lunges at Ford and the two start fighting.)
- Bill's dramatic entrance, twirling the totem pole gun. "Oh no, it's Bill. Is that what you were all thinking? Hey, Gideon, why aren't you dancing? Chop, chop!"
Pacifica: (dramatically patting her head) Ahh! My hair!Robbie: (dramatically patting his head) Ahh! My hair also!
- Then he torches the wheel, setting some of the team's hair on fire.
- As he's taunting the twins in their cage, Bill gets spraypainted by Mabel, right in his newly regrown eyeball.
- Bill's reaction to the Running Gag of being a victim of Eye Scream.
Bill: Do you know how long it takes to regenerate that eye?!
- Gideon decides to be a good regular kid instead of an evildoing one. The scene cuts to him trying to skateboard (while wearing a shirt that says "cool dawg"), but another kid passes and mocks him. Gideon then snaps his fingers and gets two of his thuggish prison buddies (who happen to be riding a seesaw) to beat the kid up.
- Immediately after Soos is appointed the new owner of the Mystery Shack, his abuela moves in. As in, within three seconds, with a moving truck as if she'd planned this from the beginning.
- The Northwest family goes bankrupt after it's revealed that Preston invested much of his fortune in "Weirdness bonds" during the events of Weirdmageddon, forcing him to auction off his mansion (which is then bought by McGucket) as Priscilla tearfully confides to Pacifica that they can only afford "just one pony" now. Cue Pacifica looking absurdly horrified, oblivious to the fact that "just one pony" is still one pony more than most kids get.
- Speaking of the Northwests: Touch the hillbilly. That is all.
- Grenda's reaction to saying a tearful goodbye to Dipper and Mabel near the end of the episode. "Augh! I hate my dumb heart for making me feel things!" Then she starts punching herself in the chest, shouting "Cut it out, heart!" Then Soos and Candy want in.
Soos: Hey, can you punch my heart too?
Candy: No, mine! Punch my feelings away!
- Crossing over with Heartwarming, Stanley tells the bus driver that Waddles is going on the bus with the kids. Just as the bus driver is saying that no animals are allowed, Stan pulls out his brass knuckles, and Ford reveals a ray gun under his jacket. Between their weapons and death glares, the bus driver timidly allows Waddles on.
- The simple fact that the notorious ten symbols ended up being completely pointless. Alex Hirsch again shows why he's the reigning Trolling Creator king.
- After Weirdmageddon ends, there are a few lingering effects, like eye bats in Farmer Sprott's barn ("Git! You ornery critters!"), and the dead rising at the Valentino funeral home. Robbie's parents take it in stride.
Mrs. Valentino: Robbie, would you be a dear and get the sawed-off shotgun?
Robbie: Ugh, fine. Whatever!
Zombie Mayor: Brains, and so forth!
Mrs. Valentino: No, none of that.
- Soos showing off a statue of Stan as the founder of the Mystery Shack? Heartwarming. Said statue being so crudely made that kids run away screaming? Hilarious.
- If you remember "Sock Opera", then this scene was particularly funny:
Sidestories/Hirsch being Hirsch/Other
- The Gravity Falls Gossiper, a podcast for, well, Gravity Falls, managed to get a hold of Alex Hirsch...playing as Grunkle Stan.
Podcaster: Let me ask you this; I know that you're a big fan of the "Period Piece Old Lady Boring Movie Channel"...
Grunkle Stan: Who told you that? I've never watched that channel.
- The entire interview is a gem, from Stan's constant swearing (bleeped out by a car horn) to his speech on the art of sad clown paintings.
- Stan also claims that Soos will fall asleep if you put a blanket over his head, like a canary in a cage, and that he's done this once.
Grunkle Stan: I got really lucky, in fact, because the property I purchased haunted up the wazoo! Alright, *honk* is real! Did I say s*honk*? Please bleep both of those!
- A deleted gag had Grunkle Stan throwing sand in Gideon's eyes and shouting 'YES, YES! BLIND THE CHILD' before running off, a variant of which actually made it into "The Deep End".
- In light of the Gravity Falls bag promotion with Subway, Alex Hirsch bezazzles his face. Cut to 40 minutes later and...
- A lot of what happens in Alex Hirsch's Reddit AMA. Some examples include:
- Whenever someone asked him a spoiler-y question, he would reply with a picture of an axolotl.
"'Bill:"' A-X-O-L-O-T-L MY TIME HAS COME TO BURN, I INVOKE THE ANCIENT POWER THAT I MAY RETURN
- But after viewing Weirdmageddon: Part 3 and finding out the gibberish Bill says before he gets killed in Grunkle Stan's mind via memory gun it seems that he is actually foreshadowing the end of the series!
- And whenever someone tried to do it at Comic Con, he would pull out the World's Most Distracting Object from "Tourist Trapped."
- He says the names of the Dipper and Mabel lookalikes are Schmipper and Smabble.
- Apparently, Mabel was once sent to the hospital for eating scratch-and-sniff stickers.
- An additional explanation for why Gideon could have gotten away with taking the Mystery Shack: Quintin Trembly decided deeds fell under "Finders Keepers".
- Whenever someone asked him a spoiler-y question, he would reply with a picture of an axolotl.
- How Alex Hirsch introduces the Gravi-team Falls Tumblr. The picture really sells it.
"For ages now I have lurked in anonymity, hiding in the shadows of the internet, watching as you’ve GIF'ed our jokes and shipped our characters and done unspeakable things to my dear Pines Twins. You…you’ve got some issues Tumblr. We’re all worried about you."
"All opinions, rants, swears and typos do not represent the opinions of the Disney Company or any of the individual Jonas Brothers.
- The little disclaimer he sticks at the end:
- It becomes less funny when you realize that Alex Hirsch based Dipper and Mabel on himself and his twin sister.
- The SDCC 2014 panel. Highlights include:
- Jason Ritter showing up for the panel in Dipper cosplay, waving his hat nonchalantly as if this was his normal state of dress.
- The cast performs a small (non-canon) skit for the audience, titled "A Widdle Trip to Prison".
- Alex Hirsch answering any particularly spoiler-y questions with a puppet of Old Man McGucket.
- Bill forcing the audience to recite an oath before watching the Season 2 trailer.
Bill: I, the human being in this plastic chair, do solemnly swear not to repeat any of the secrets in this trailer under punishment of NIGHTMARE HORROR. (Quickly) InadditioniswearmyallegiancetoBillCipherandwelcomehimtousemybodyasheseesfit.
- And the best part? At least one person actually agreed to the latter term.
- Soos' hilariously awful substitute for the Season 2 trailer when it buffers right before it plays.
- "DO YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR TEETH, FLESH PILE?!"
- Pendleton Ward discovers how to break the skybox in Goat Simulator, and then Alex Hirsch shows up◊.
- Alex Hirsch uses a Bill puppet to mess with his coworkers.
- From 2014 LA Film Fest panel, the deleted scene from "Summerween" that has Grunkle Stan ripping his own (fake) head off, as well as the reveal that the reason it was changed was NOT Disney censors.
- Dipper & Mabel's Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun!
1. DON'T build it where your enemies would expect it. They'll expect to find it there2. DON'T build it where your enemies would least expect it. Your enemies are clever. They'll expect to find it where they'd least expect to find it.
- Dipper on choosing one's base of operations:
- An unused version of Dipper's first meeting with Bill Cipher had Bill appearing to Dipper in his dreams. When Dipper woke up, he found the words "The dream is real- Bill" written on his hand. Further down on his wrist was another message: "Look what I did to your other hand" On the other hand, a doodle of a turkey was scrawled on with the words "Look, a turkey!"
- From this live-action interview of Stan while he's in police custody:
Stan: Dipper, while I'm in jail, you're the man of the house. (beat) Actually, wait. Scratch that. Mabel, while I'm in jail, you're the man of the house.
- This official AMA from Bill Cipher himself is full of laughs.
- It also implies that Bill is the one who keeps untying Dipper's shoelaces as mentioned in "Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun".
- When asked if there was anything to beware of, Bill's response was to beware of the Blob, that creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor...
- Bill's use of Symbol Swearing when asked about a certain cereal slogan:
BunnyDeville: You see lots of things, but can you see that kids love the taste of cinnamon toast crunch?Bill: WHAAAAAT??! THERE'S DELICIOUS CINNAMON SWIRLS IN EVERY BITE?!?! HOW IS THAT EVEN *$&##& POSSIBLE?!
- During the mid-season 2 hiatus, we get Old Man McGucket's Conspiracy Corner, thirty second blurbs of McGucket indulging in some Wild Mass Guessing before his lunacy kicks in.
"I got my own honeybee farm! And the bees can smell my fear! HELP!"
- When talking about how the agents are everywhere, he mentions that he saw them at the mall while he was getting a new wash tub. "The beaver ran off with my old one!" (Beaver pokes his head in) "You know what you did!"
- The announcer on the promo saying "Why a corner? Because we don't trust him with the whole room."
- In a similar vein, there's now 'Pocalypse Preppin'', where McGucket shows off his survival shelter.
- At Creativa Fest 2015, Hirsch describes the show's writing process. As an anti-example, he comes up with a theoretical version of "Not What He Seems" that conveys the same plot twists in the most anticlimactic manner possible:
We could have had the episode [be:] the kids wake up, Soos runs in, and just says, “Hey guys, it’s a portal and Grunkle Stan wants his secret brother back. Hey, everybody, spoiler alert, it’s a portal, it’s a portal, it’s a brother portal. Ok, bye! I’m Soos!” That could have been the episode.
- Someone took a spoilery clip from "Not What He Seems" and added a sound clip from a Vine by Hirsch.
- When America passed the marriage equality bill, Alex Hirsch used the screenshot of Grunkle Stan screaming in horror at a rainbow from the short "Mabel's Guide To Color" to represent "grumpy old straight guys" reacting to the news. When Twitter user Grumpy Shadow responds with a joke about Grunkle Stan being a grouchy old Republican (ten guns, obsessed with money), Alex brings up Stan marrying the male coin machine in Vegas...
- Upon noticing a resemblance between a wooded area in Grand Theft Auto V to Gravity Falls, Oregon, Alex Hirsch replies, "Stan Theft Auto."
- Here Alex explains his side of the fan predictions for Tad Strange.
- When both the world and your show are coming to an end, it can only mean one thing at the Mystery Shack: it's also the end of high, high prices!
- Even better are the outtakes. Complete with a (albeit censored) recital of Bill O' Riley's infamous "We'll do it live!" outtake.
- Kristen Schaal's reaction to being told she just recorded her last Mabel line.
Kristen: -OOOOOOOOOO! Why would you do this? Why would you end Mabel? (She throws the script.) She has all the joy!Alex: (He stops laughing) She still lives on in our hearts.Kristen: Okay.
- The Mystery of Gravity Falls, the official Disney-sponsered Youtube Channel for the show, initially posted a short trailer for Weirdmageddon 3, only to take it down a few days later and upload one that was very similar but with one scene removed (what appears to be two members of the Cipher Wheel holding hands and glowing). Naturally, speculation ran rampant that they had taken down the first promo because it was too spoilery, and were trying to pretend the first one never existed. What did TMOGF do? Release a Gravity Falls Super Fans teaser that shows that they know about the fans' speculations and dissection of the promos, so this one has "stock footage of totally unrelated stuff" (which of course fans are calling Suspiciously Specific Denial about). Also they say that Stan-buelita isn't happening.
- This is how Alex Hirsch sums up Bill and Time Baby's antagonism thusly; "Time Baby and Bill do not like each other, if they saw each other at a party they would be doing that 'awkward circle thing' where they're making eye contact but they're not talking to each other and everybody's like 'Do they know each other? Do they have a history?'."
- In an accidental way, Disney XD's usually-annoying "Dance Break!" eye catch airing right on the heels of Bill ordering Gideon to get back to dancing for all eternity during the first airing of Weirdmageddon 3 was some fine Black Comedy.
